Thanksgiving: The fourth Thursday of November marks Thanksgiving, but to many Indigenous communities it is a National Day of Mourning. It is important that that we recognize the the genocide this day celebrates. We acknowledge the oppression that started this holiday, while also acknowledging that we have the privilege to organize. We are thankful for the ability to try to right the harm of the past.

We also want to recognize those who are still working this week. Whether it's retail or healthcare, all of our essential workers who keep us going and who deserve safety, dignity and protection always. We are thankful for you, and will stand up for you.

Giving Tuesday: Save the date for Giving Tuesday, December 1st and remember to give where you live! Your donation will make a huge difference in the lives of Nevada’s immigrant workers and children who can’t access COVID relief services but need support to keep from being evicted and going hungry. Your gift will also help us end the pernicious policy of cash bail that allows Black Nevadans to rot in jail for minor offenses like broken tail lights. You will also be supporting our Native American program’s work to protect Nevada’s precious groundwater and address the plight of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women.

Eviction Moratorium: The CDC issued a national moratorium on most evictions for tenants impacted by COVID through December 31, 2020. You’re covered by the moratorium order if you:

  • Are unable to pay full rent due to loss of income or medical expenses
  • Make less than $99,000 in annual income or received a stimulus check
  • Would become homeless or have to live in crowded/substandard housing if evicted
  • Have tried to access government assistance for rent or housing
  • Have tried to make partial payments based on what you can afford

For more information about the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Eviction Moratorium, check out these fact sheets from Legal Aid of Southern Nevada. 



Donate to PLAN's Undocumented Emergency Relief Fund: Please donate to PLAN’s emergency relief fund for front line workers and families in Nevada who are not eligible for CARES or other COVID relief. The PLAN Citizenship Office will review applications and provide $300 to families at risk for eviction, food insecurity, and other hardships. If you have questions please contact ecastro@planevada.org or call 775-238-3416.
