United Way Presidents Forum

On January 9, 80 United Way leaders visited on Capitol Hill and advocated for the success of our communities at the United Way Presidents Forum. UWSN President & CEO Kyle B. Rahn and United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra President & CEO Michael Brazier attended this impactful event to advocate for Nevadans! Our leaders met with elected Nevada officials to share how programs like EITC help Nevadans succeed. We are so inspired by their advocacy efforts and passion to help those most in need in our community.
