Some people from Albuquerque made the trip to Washington, D.C. for the Martin Luther King, Jr. march Wednesday.

A few women were there from the New Mexico Martin Luther King Jr. State Commission.  They both said it is important for them to reflect on the past, remember what Martin Luther King Jr. did for civil rights, and look forward to what they can do in New Mexico in the future.

"New Mexico has a predominantly Native American and Hispanic population," Executive Director of the New Mexico Martin Luther King Jr. State Commission Kimberly Green said.  "So we already deal with a lot of minority issues and things like that, but bringing our continuity together...it's important."

One of the main goals of the New Mexico Martin Luther King Jr. State Commission is to substantially reduce violence by juveniles in our state.  Green said she hopes to gain some strategies from her trip to use in New Mexico.
