Ennedith López is the 2021-2022 New Mexico Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies. During her time at IPS, she has conducted research for the Mining, Trade, and Latin America project and Climate Policy Project. She has also served as a key coordinator and supporter of the 2021 Letelier-Moffitt awardees, OFRANEH, during their delegation visit in Washington, D.C.

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Ennedith’s environment fueled her passion for community-based advocacy. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of New Mexico (UNM), where she received her Bachelors of Arts in International Studies and Spanish and a certificate in Race and Social Justice. At UNM, she participated in two exchange programs in Lima, Peru and Guadalajara, Mexico, which inspired her capstone research project on Femicides in Latin America. During her senior year, she worked as Peer Leader at the College Assistance Migrant Program and completed an internship at the Center for Social Sustainable Systems (CESOSS).

Ennedith’s involvement at these organizations focused on support for first-generation students from migrant farm working families, including conducting research on culturally-informed solutions for New Mexican public policy. She hopes to use her fellowship at IPS to better support immigrant, POC, and low-income communities in the state of New Mexico.
