Poverty has been an ongoing struggle for far too many families in our local community for far too long. The COVID-19 crisis has only magnified that struggle here in Albuquerque.
In 2020, the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living knew that it had to step up more than ever to fulfill its mission: Love in Action --> Transforming Lives, Transforming Communities.
The decision to sponsor a Circles® chapter is a Spirit-inspired demonstration of Love In Action, allowing the transformation of lives and of poverty itself in Albuquerque.
Circles ABQ Staff
Rev. Amani Malaika
I am over the moon to be part of a spiritual community that is more than words and prayer. I know that none of us is free until we are all free. I know that when we come together to support each other to live our best lives we are Love In Action. I am thrilled to bring Circles ABQ to our community and watch Love itself transform lives.
The Circles Coordinator is the main point of contact for the community and is focused on community engagement.
We are looking for someone with experience in working with diverse socio-economic communities, deep knowledge of poverty, and skills in community organizing and volunteer management.
My graduate degree is in Community Outreach and Public Health Education. I have over 15 years experience serving as a health and wellness educator in the community and overseeing public relations, educational and volunteer programming for multiple organizations. In 2012 I founded Gift Givers Anonymous (GGA), a non-profit organization providing household furnishings to hundreds of individuals and families moving out of homelessness. I have a heartfelt passion for doing community outreach and
community educational programming and for empowering individuals and communities to accomplish their goals.
