Nevada Women’s Lobby

The Nevada Women’s Lobby has a long history of advocating for the state’s women and children. After a group of women organized in a Reno living room in 1988 around legislation that now protects abortion rights in Nevada, they continued to be a force at the Legislature by sending their own paid lobbyist and army of volunteers. One of their most successful events each session in Carson City is Grassroots Lobby Days, a weeklong event in which female voters are encouraged to learn more about the legislative process, and to effectively lobby and meet their representatives. The event is so successful that the ACLU of Nevada and Nevada Advocates for Planned Parenthood Affiliates have joined the effort.
