Nevada Democratic Victory celebrated Juneteenth last weekend with events featuring elected officials from across Nevada honoring the history of Juneteenth and celebrating the contributions of Black Nevadans from across the State. At Jammyland, a Black-owned small business in the Las Vegas Arts District, elected officials discussed the importance of the holiday and the imperative to elevate Black voices and Black elected leadership.

In honor of Immigrant Heritage Month, State Democratic leaders came together to host a celebration of immigrant communities at Nevada Democratic Victory’s East Las Vegas office. The event featured shaved ice from Raspados de Frutas Naturales ‘El Delicioso,’ an immigrant-owned small business. Immigrants from AAPI, African, and Latin American countries all joined to discuss the importance of protecting immigrant rights and leadership in our State.

Sen. Mo Denis, who founded the Nevada Hispanic Legislative Caucus, introduced a bill signed into law by Gov. Steve Sisolak creating the Office for New Americans. At the event, Reuben D’Silva, candidate for AD-28, an immigrant himself, underscored his service in the Marine Corps and being wounded in the line of duty before he became a citizen. Erica Mosca, candidate for AD-14 and daughter of Filipino immigrants discussed the importance of representation for immigrant communities in the Legislature — her victory in November will make her the first-ever Filipino represented in the Nevada Legislature.
