The Importance of Antiracist Practice to Prosperity Works
As an asset-building leader, Prosperity Works recognizes the inextricable linkage between socioeconomic and racial inequities—all of which are being brought into sharp relief by the global pandemic.
Prosperity Works is committed to being an active antiracist organization that works through our Financial Opportunity & Inclusion Continuum (FOIC) to bake authentic, equity-centered education into our internal processes and outward-facing initiatives as we advocate for the liberation of limited-income and Black, Indigenous, People of Color communities (BIPOC).
We will endeavor to be explicit about how our FOIC initiatives intersect with and inform our antiracist praxis, and how we center race in our community-focused, collaborative solutions.
We have scoped specific equity-centered milestones within the next five years, and will “do the work” authentically—recognizing that effecting equitable outcomes rarely occurs along a linear trajectory when done intentionally; as such, we fully expect organic growth and development within and beyond our milestones.

What We Do
Prosperity Works advocates across public and private sectors to change attitudes, behaviors and policies that reinforce systemic poverty. We also connect New Mexicans to opportunities, knowledge and relationships to achieve economic prosperity.
How We Do It
We believe that direct, high-impact investments in hard-working, committed individuals and families are the best investment you can make. Our asset-building strategies allow families to build financial security and sound futures by saving for resources like homes, small businesses and education.
Why We Do It
Life without assets is challenging and unpredictable. Life with assets stabilizes families, increases agency, and strengthens communities. Prosperity for all New Mexicans cannot flourish without fundamental changes to systems, attitudes and behaviors.
Prosperity Works is a 501(c)(3) organization.
