Protecting Reproductive Freedom

The Nevada Women’s Lobby works to secure reproductive freedom for women and men in Nevada. We strive to ensure that state legislators do not pass laws that take away the right of individuals to control their own family planning, and we support affordable access to birth control, sexual health education, and safe abortion services.

Preventing Violence Against Women and Families

Nevada has the fifth highest rate among U.S. states for women being killed by men. Over half of these homicides are committed with firearms and children often fall victim either as witnesses or as targets for violence. The Nevada Women’s Lobby is committed to efforts that prevent these unacceptable tragedies and other forms of family, domestic and sexual violence.

Eliminating Poverty

Too many families in Nevada are still struggling with more than 15% still living below the federal poverty line for a family of four is $24,250 (2015). Even worse, close to 23% of children in Nevada are living in poverty. Without safety net resources provided by state and federal programs including food stamps, WIC, school lunches, TANF and housing subsidies, closer to 38% of children in Nevada would be living in poverty.
