ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - "Breaking Bad" actor Steven Michael Quezada is scheduled to address the League of United Latin American Citizens New Mexico convention as activists aim to tackle education reform.

Around 800 activists from around New Mexico are expected to take part of the three-day state convention of LULAC New Mexico slated to begin Friday at Albuquerque's Sheraton Uptown Hotel.

The state's first Latina congresswoman, Michelle Lujan Grisham, also is scheduled to address advocates.

State director Ralph Arellanes says LULAC wants New Mexico public schools to include more Hispanic history and address the achievement gap between white students and students of color.

Quezada recently was elected to the Albuquerque school board.

LULAC officials also will be meeting with U.S. Justice Department officials over the pending excessive force investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department.
