Cindy Aragon’s voice kept getting cut off because of the spotty cell phone service in the rural area of northwest New Mexico from which she was calling. The listeners were most of the 15 members of the ABA’s Women in Criminal Justice Task Force, as well as a room full of women criminal law attorneys from around the state, all of whom convened at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque on March 1, 2019, to investigate women’s experiences in hiring, promotion, and retention. The Task Force members at the event included co-chairs Carla Laroche and Tina Luongo, April Frazier Camara, Barbara Creel, Judge Bernice Donald, Daniela Donoso Garcia, Maria Carmen Hinayon, Judge Denise Langford Morris, Gloria Ochoa-Bruck, Judge Rachel Pickering, Sarah Redfield, and Major Susan Upward.
