Vote Nevada Supporters,
The NAACP and the National Action Network are hosting an event on Thursday, February 10th, 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at the East Las Vegas Library (2851 E Bonanza Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89101) with four representatives of local law enforcement. The theme of the event is Bridging the Gap between the Police, the Community, and Youth.
Captain Hatchett, who met with Vote Nevada’s Mental and Behavioral Health Committee in January, to chat about his vision for better integrating social workers and mental health services into community policing efforts, is on the panel.
You can view Captain Hatchett’s discussion with our committee here: https://vote-nevada.news/Captain-Hatchett-Presentation
I will be attending the February 10th meeting to support Captain Hatchett’s efforts.
We all know that mental illness and homelessness are often intertwined problems, so it is important to address affordable housing if we expect to stop sending the mentally ill into our prison system.
The Nevada National Organization of Women is hosting a virtual panel discussion about the housing crisis on February 20th, at 4 pm. You can RSVP through a link on this page: https://fb.me/e/1TLACy4Zw
Lastly, Robert Strawder, who is doing excellent work with our youth by offering classes that blend hip hop music with civics education and social and emotional health training, is hosting a Black History Talent Show on February 26th, at Doolittle Community Center, 11 am to 1 pm. 1950 N J St, Las Vegas, NV 89106
If you know a youth who would like to enter his/her music talents into the competition, email: email@example.com
Thank you for being Nevadans with me,
