To create a better community, we need to challenge ourselves to move beyond addressing the symptoms and instead tackle the root causes of the issues facing our region. Developing a system of support from cradle to career builds strong and stable families, setting a precedent for positive change. We believe that by uniting as a community, we can create multi-generational transformative change for children and families in Southern Nevada.
2019 presented a set of advocacy challenges but the United Way of Southern Nevada’s partners and supporters united around the Community-Based Agenda and stepped up to advocate for the community we serve. Working in concert with our Board of Directors, Public Policy Committee, and community advocates, we identified priorities for the 2019 Legislative Session in our Policy Agenda and advocated to improve opportunity for all.
