Make the Road Nevada is a non-profit organization based in Las Vegas, Nevada who along with community members advocate for seven main pillars: immigration justice, economic justice, housing justice, environmental justice, health equity, youth justice and civic engagement.  

Our mission is centered around our working-class immigrant community’s needs to achieve

dignity and justice. We fight for our community through organizing, transformative education, policy innovation, empowering, mobilizing and providing resources. 

After the horrific mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert at the Mandalay Bay on October 17th, 2017, MRNV identified dozens of undocumented immigrants who had been working the event who were turned away from receiving the support other citizens in attendance received. 

As one of our very first acts as an organization, we worked closely with these survivors to ensure they received the help needed to heal physically, mentally and emotionally. This group became our first cohort of member leaders and went on to set our initial priorities. 

Make the Road Nevada has a reach of over 11,000 members in our state. Our membership spans generations and represents countries across the globe. We universally welcome the LGBTIQ+ community, immigrants from all nations regardless of status, and allies in non-marginalized communities. 

Supported by our organizing staff, our members lead our campaign committees and develop campaign plans to bring necessary change into their communities; we at Make the Road Nevada believe change is a collaborative effort between member leaders, members, and staff.
