A Message from our South Washoe DEMS Chairperson

First of all, I thank you all for your support for our shared values and efforts. The South Washoe DEMS has become the largest and most successful Democratic affiliate group in Northern Nevada, and that has only been possible because of you! We are grateful for your support and look forward to continuing to provide opportunities for community service, substantive discussion, and meaningful education to our members. 

Out of an abundance of caution and concern for those members, the South Washoe DEMS steering committee voted to cancel our April meeting, even before Governor Sisolak‚Äôs orders to Stay Home Nevada. Our program for April was to be a debate between U.S. Congressional Candidates for our Congressional District (CD-2). We want to assure you that we are actively working on rescheduling that debate for the May meeting when, hopefully, this health crisis will have abated. Please be assured that we will continue to keep you apprised of the status of this future program/meeting, which remains contingent upon the evolving Coronavirus situation. 

Please check our websiteOpen in a New Window for the status of the May meeting. Thank you for your understanding. We value your support and look forward to seeing you at future meetings and events. Stay safe. Stay well, my friends.

TRUMP'S ATTEMPT TO DISMANTLE ACA EMBOLDENED BY SUPREME COURT
Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Molly Forgey released the following statement:
"The Trump Administration has worked since day one to undermine the Affordable Care Act and rip health care away from hundreds of thousands of Nevadans. Since taking office, Trump made it his top priority to end protections for patients with pre-existing conditions and to make it harder for Nevada families to receive the care they deserve. Under Democratic leadership, our state codified protections for the more than 1.2 million Nevadans with pre-existing conditions because we know Republicans can't be trusted with our health care. That's why our state rejected Trump's cronies in 2018 and will, once again, reject him in November." Read more...
