Progressive Summit hopes to educate Nevada voters

NORTH LAS
VEGAS —
We are just four weeks away from the Nevada caucus, and state
leaders want to make sure you’re ready. That’s the goal of the 2020 Progressive
Summit.

The two-day convention aims
to educate voters on what our candidates stand for and how it impacts you. The summit
at College of Southern Nevada’s North Las Vegas campus hopes to educate and
engage, not only about the upcoming election but progressive stand points.

Kicking off the event was Governor
Steve Sisolak. He addressed accomplishments so far under his administration —
from Nevada joining the US Climate Alliance to giving teachers across the state
a pay raise.

Along with speakers, the
event features workshops, breakout sessions and panel discussions about the
progressive movement. That includes challenges as well as opportunities coming
up this year, especially in this 2020 election.

“If you want to look at
what the future of our country looks like, I advise the candidates to come
here, to look out at this audience,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “Look at the
diversity, look at the men and women that are here. This is what the United
States of America looks like, this is what Nevada is and this is what I am so
proud to represent.”          

Congresswomen Susie Lee and Dina
Titus also stepped up to the podium. Both highlighted achievements in the house
so far and spoke briefly about impeachment. The duo stressed the power of the
people to make change.

The event will continue Sunday
beginning at 8 in the morning.
