Mission

The New Mexico Governor's Commission on Disability is committed to improving the quality of life of all New Mexicans with disabilities by addressing social integration, economic self-sufficiency, political resolve, physical and program accessibility, and full participation in the benefits of life and rights of all individuals.

GCD addresses physical, sensory, programmatic and attitudinal barriers to forward its mission. Such barriers may keep a person with a disability from enjoying the full aspects of community living.

GCD works to improve the quality of life of New Mexicans with disabilities through progressive systems advocacy.

GCD promotes community living and access to: employment opportunities; universal access to information; appropriate, available assistive technology; accessible education; accessible, affordable, universally designed housing (rental and single family); accessible, available transportation (rural and urban); available home and community-based services based on functional need; and, access to social and recreational settings.

GCD serves as liaison and advisor to the Governor and Legislature on disability issues.
