The Nevada Legislative Session has ended and well, in the rush we got a lot passed and unfortunately a lot bills were left by the wayside. BUT! Overall, I think this was a great session for progressive causes and I just want to remind you all that YOU DID THIS. We got out the vote, we campaigned for our reps, we made history with the first female majority legislative body in the country– and most importantly we kept the pressure on our reps during the legislative session. For a good wrap-up of what bills were passed (and which ones were abandoned), visit The Nevada Independent (link) and Battle Born Progess (link).

Marianas Supermarket: 4151 S Eastern Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89119Recently McDonald’s workers recently took to the streets across the country calling on the corporation to address the epidemic of violence and sexual harassment in their stores; adding to their demand for a $15 wage and union rights. They were joined on strike lines and through online support by 2/3 of Democratic presidential candidates joining the call for McDonald’s to do the right thing and meet employees’ demands for union rights, higher wages and safe workplaces.
And let’s keep McDonald’s on the run! Stand with workers June 14 at Mariana’s Supermarket Parking Lot, 4151 S Eastern Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89129 at 1:15PM to keep the pressure on McDonald’s to deliver more than PR platitudes.

11:45am – 1pm: Marching down the half-block of Tenaya until we arrive at the corner on Cheyenne (in front of the In-N-Out Burger). There will be hundreds of people in that area then, so our visibility will not go unnoticed.
