We’re ending the month and beginning another with a bang at Make the Road Nevada. Starting on April 25th, we will be hosting our Blitz at the MRNV office, inviting staff and members for leadership and development training.
The week-long event, which will end April 30th, will include a combination of classroom workshops and real field experience; these efforts will create confident and stronger community leaders in Nevada as we embark on the upcoming elections.
Training and workshops will be led by MRNV staff, ranging from our communications and civic engagement sectors to our organization sectors. Some of the topics that will be discussed include but are not limited to: housing, climate, fair scheduling and worker protections, immigration reform, and education.
We are then continuing the momentum with our May Day march on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday, May 1st.
MRNV, the immigrant community, and allies will come together to celebrate immigrant workers and union labor—and to demand President Biden to deliver permanent relief for the millions undocumented immigrants who call the United States home.
“May Day serves as a reminder that immigrant labor is one of the many ways immigrant communities contribute to this nation,” said Rico Ocampo, our Immigrant Justice organizer. “It’s important for families across the nation to march so their power and perseverance can be visible.”
Please join MRNV on May Day at 6:00pm in front of the Bellagio fountains; we will be marching to the New York-New York Hotel & Casino’s Statue of Liberty. If you have any questions, please contact our Immigrant Justice organizer, Rico Ocampo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
