For Our Future Nevada is a statewide coalition organization that focuses on building progressive power in Nevada’s diverse communities through direct voter engagement and issue-based organizing. By creating a sustainable and long-term organizing effort in Nevada, we play an impactful role in future political battles, including the 2020 election cycle, the redistricting process that will take place during the 81st Nevada Legislature in 2021, and the looming fight to properly fund our schools by fixing the long-standing revenue problem that has plagued Nevada and prevented true progressive change for decades.
Helped pass bills to expand eligibility for the NV Promise Scholarship enabling more students to get the help they need and deserve, create a student loan ombudsman to guide students through the loan process, and provide certain Nevada employees with earned paid sick days to care for themselves and their families.
We worked with the Nevada State Education Association to defeat the Education Savings Accounts plan, commonly referred to as vouchers or ESAs. Vouchers take money out of the public school system and divert it to private schools. Our field program organized thousands of constituents to send letters opposing the voucher program to the legislature to help ultimately defeat this scheme to rob public schools of needed resources.
