Vote Nevada Supporters,
Our Meet the Dann Sisters event examined how the federal government historically entered into agreements with indigenous peoples and the government’s sad history of breaking those agreements.
Mary and Carrie Dann took their fight to force the federal government to recognize the Ruby Valley Treaty of 1863 to the U.S. Supreme Court and even to the UN Commission on Human Rights.

Lastly, I want to share a new media platform that aims to provide a transparent and civil space to discuss civic engagement and political problem-solving. This new platform is called Civil Talk https://www.civiltalk.com/
The platform creators invited nonprofit organizations that work in these spaces to join and provide engagement opportunities for community members. So, Vote Nevada has an account to support these entrepreneurs who are trying to address misinformation and incivility.
When someone creates a Civil Talk account, the platform verifies the person is not a bot and mediators monitor complaints about misinformation and uncivil behavior.
There is a $20 charge to create an account that allows a person to post information and to engage with other participants’ posts. The platform owners will donate $5 from that $20 to a nonprofit participating with Civil Talk.
Thank you for being Nevadans with me,
