The Govenor's Budget is slashing $20 million from State mental health. We must convince the Legislators to restore this budget.
Join us on Saturday, March 11th at 1 PM at Montevista Hospital, 6000 West Rochelle, near Jones, just south of Flamingo.
Show up, bring your friends. We need to let the State Legislature know that it's not right to balance the budget on the back of those living with mental illness! And we need your help.

We are proud to annouce that we have been chosen as Vegas Seven's Best Political Organization 2015. To quote the magazine: "The League of Women Voters of Las Vegas Valley succeeds where some other political organizations fail: Quite simply, they keep their members informed. In the past year, the League's local chapter, which was formed in 1964, greatly enhanced its profile by regularly sending updates on the Legislature, and recruiting key community members to speak at meetings about issues such as the voting system and solar energy. The group also engages with its audience on Facebook and Twitter (nonmembers are encouraged to glance at the League's social media accounts to keep tabson the progress - or lack thereof - on current issues)."
Thank you Vegas Seven!
