Oct. 12, 2019 This past weekend was the 22nd annual Pride Parade and Festival, and as part of the community, Make the Road Nevada (MRNV) was there to support and share some of the work we do. Along with sharing information, we were doing face painting, LGBTQ trivia, and selling are limited edition Pride Shirts, with all the proceeds going towards DACA scholarships. 

On the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, celebrating Pride was important for our community. As we continue to support and fight for equal rights and dignity for the immigrant community, we remember the loss of Roxsana Hernandez two years ago, a trans woman from Honduras, while under ICE custody. Rosxana was fleeing the discrimination she was facing in her home because of what she identified as. While seeking asylum, she was taken into custody at the border, but was neglected and incorrectly housed, and eventually passed away. 

We got to share information on some of the most influential activists in the LGBTQ community, from Las Vegas and past leaders of the struggle for equal rights, through our trivia game with sweet candy prizes. It was a great way to celebrate the long fight for equal rights and the continued struggle by the LGBTQ community.  If you would like to get involved or get more information on services for survivors, contact us at info@maketheroadnv.org or join us at our weekly meetings Wednesdays at 6 pm.

Paid sick days are important for our community! Can you imagine waking up in the morning to find out your child is sick and can’t go to school? First thing in mind is that you can’t miss work because you won’t get paid, there will be consequences and you can potentially lose your job? This is the fear families in Nevada go through when their children get sick or even themselves. Going to work sick is not ideal for anyone, people should have the right to recover and take care of themselves.

Currently in Nevada there is no law that forces businesses to provide paid sick days to their employees. Only some business in our state have established some days as they understand that When workers aren’t forced to choose between caring for loved ones and work, they are more likely to stay in jobs. They understand that we need common sense workplace reforms that reflect the hard realities facing families.

Here is what you need to know about Paid Sick Days:

  •      According to the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, 49 percent of the workforce cannot earn a single paid sick day to use to recover from common illnesses or seek medical care.
  •      For a typical family in the United States without paid sick days, for example, 3.5 days lost to illness are equivalent to the family’s entire monthly grocery budget
  •      Nevada is home to nearly 500,000 Latino workers, who have disproportionately low access to paid sick days
  •      Paid sick days are good for business. Employee turnover is expensive, on average, one fifth of an employee’s annual salary. Paid sick days result in reduced turnover, which leads to reduced hiring and training costs for businesses.
