Friday Community Wellness Chat
Nevada's 31st Special Session in is in full swing to mitigate the unprecedented economic crisis we are dealing.

Join us for this week's wellness webchat to learn how your advocacy can help us build a stronger state that will put people and planet first over corporations because that is how we take care of one another.

Special Session: Last Wednesday, the 31st Special Session of the Nevada State Legislature convened to address the expected $1.2 billion shortfall in the state's budget for 2021. Alongside our partner organizations like ACTIONN, AFSCME, Battle Born Progress, Children's Advocacy Alliance, and the Women's Lobby we have been calling on the legislature to be bold and enact real revenue reform. For too long we have allowed Nevada to be taken advantage of by corporations, like the mining industry, who fail to pay their fair share. It’s time to fix what’s broken about our economy and create long-term solutions for our communities to all have the freedom to thrive.
