ACLU Nevada Letter of Intent 2017

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Dear Rose,

The 2017 Legislative Session is officially kicked off yesterday, we here at the ACLU of Nevada are excited to work with you on the important issues which will help protect and further civil liberties and rights here in Nevada.

The ACLU of Nevada will be proactive in supporting legislation that seeks to end the death penalty, mandates a more transparent, open and accessible state government, brings additional protections to those who identify as LGBTQ+, especially our youth, improves our criminal justice system, and many others.

We will also staunchly oppose any effort to revive the unconstitutional voucher scheme passed in 2015. We believe in public money for public schools and will not stand for taxpayer funded discrimination.

Over the course of the next 120 days, we will need your support and passion more than ever. Holly Welborn, our policy director, and the policy team will lead our legislative effort on the ground in Carson City for the duration of the session. You can help us by showing up to hearings, amplifying our message online, and calling and writing to your representatives to make your voice heard on the issues they will be voting on.

We are grateful for the support you provide and look forwarding to standing with you on issues specific to Nevada over the course of this legislative session and our ongoing national efforts.  Follow our legislative work
