Equality Days Off to a Great Start in Carson City, NV

This post comes from Rik Holman, co-chair of the political committee of the Las Vegas steering committee.

Last night, the Las Vegas steering committee hosted the opening reception of Nevada's biannual Equality Days, where constituents come to Carson City to speak with their legislators face to face.

It was great to see many community partners and members rally for a great cause. Our guest speaker, Allyson Robinson, Associate Director of Diversity at HRC, spoke with passion about her story and the need for passing an inclusive ENDA and more specifically, AB211, state legislation would provide anti-discrimination policies to the state's employment laws in regards to gender identity and expression.

After the legislators finished up their last minute session, many joined us at the Firkin & Fox, a staple of the political community in Carson City. There we spoke with out Sen. David Parks, who happens to be a lead sponsor on AB211 as well as SB180, anti-bullying legislation. This morning, we'll be meeting with our legislators urging them to do the right thing. If you're a Nevada resident, you can make your voice heard by sending a letter to you representatives.
