Serving the Northern Nevada Immigrant Community
Immigrants are an important part of the fabric of Nevada’s society. They are fundamental to our primary industries and quality of life. For immigrants, life in Nevada may provide more opportunities than before, but it is still very hard. Many parents work two or three low-wage jobs, sacrificing today for a better tomorrow for their kids.
Undocumented Nevadans are especially vulnerable and are often forced to live in the shadows. Children live in constant fear that their parents will be deported.
PLAN believes these families deserve to live openly without fear, and be recognized as contributing members of our communities. PLAN supports immigrants’ rights to legal status and advancement to citizenship, and it works to change policy to protect immigrant families.
