ECONOMIC JUSTICE (EJ) WORKGROUP

WHO WE ARE

The Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence (NCEDSV) is committed to addressing economic justice inequity issues through our NCEDSV Statewide EJ Workgroup. This unique workgroup was formed in 2021 with the force and collaboration of over a dozen statewide and regional agencies that serve some of the most marginalized and least represented Nevadans. These social service heroes hail from housing, children’s advocacy, voting rights, health services, employment, culturally specific services, equity/equality, human trafficking, and domestic and sexual violence.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

These extraordinary social service agencies are working under extreme conditions to help millions of Nevadans who are struggling with unemployment, low wages, a scarcity of accessible housing, feeble mental health services and an unacceptable prevalence of violence.
