I want to start this email by thanking all those who've worked so hard to secure marriage equality in NV and across America. SCOTUS's decision will go down in history and you should all be proud of the work you've done to make this dream a reality for so many LGBTQ Americans. Below are some updates re: Marriage Equality from the Hillary for NV campaign:
- SOCIAL MEDIA: Check out the @HillaryforNV Twitter page and the Hillary for NV Facebook page to share posts celebrating marriage equality!

LAS VEGAS OFFICE OPENING: Be on the look out next week for details on our Las Vegas office opening event! I'll be sending the schedule to all of you once we finalize the details. I hope you'll all be able to attend!
Every now and then we are going to need some help from local supporters and community leaders like you. Below is a list of ways to help the Hillary for NV campaign right now:
SUPPORTER HOUSING: Our organizing department is receiving resumes every day from people around the country who want to work in NV to get Hillary elected. Right now we have over 70 fellows on the ground, but we could use more. If any of you are willing to provide supporter housing for a summer fellow, or know someone who might be interested, please give me a call or send me an email.
SPONSOR A PHONE BANK: Our volunteers and fellows are in the office every night making calls to gain support for Hillary. I think we all agree that hard work deserves to be rewarded, and that's why we are asking local leaders to sponsor a phone bank and bring in some food for our hardworking vols! If you're interested, please call or email me anytime.
SMS PROGRAM: Earlier this week our Digital Department launched the Hillary for NV SMS program. All you have to do is text 'NEVADA' to 47246 to get all the latest campaign updates. Please share with other supporters and friends!

KEY EXCERPT: “Her comments personally resonate with me as an African American,” said Nevada State Sen. Aaron Ford, who supported Barack Obama in 2008. “This morning at the gym I spoke with a couple people who were appreciative of the stance she has taken on this. Her courage in this instance is shining through.”
