Las Vegas, NV – On Saturday, Oct. 20 at 10:30 am, the first day of Nevada’s Early Voting, candidates will rally with scores of nurses, healthcare workers and public service workers. SEIU Nevada and the Asian Pacific American Labor Allianceare building a powerful political voice for working people in local, state and national politics. Since the spring, union members have been participating in phone banks, canvassing events and more in support of pro-worker candidates.
“I am type-1 diabetic, and I wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for my health insurance – I’m one of the lucky ones. That is why we need to elect candidates who understand that affordable health care is a necessity,” said Roxana Valladares, Legal Office Assistant, Clark County.
Opportunities will be available to speak to candidates, caregivers and public service workers.
