Mission

Gender Justice Nevada is dedicated to an intersectional approach to changing law, policy, and attitudes.

Gender Equality Now.

We strive for a future where all Nevadans can live safely, authentically and free from fear, violence and mistreatment. No human should suffer discrimination or loos opportunity because of gender identity.

Vision

We seek to return to who we were before others forced us to be what they wanted us to be.

Self-determination is a fundamental right for all.

Authentic gender identity, expression, and sexual orientation are a matter of common human dignity. We believe such changes are necessary to liberate us all from oppression.

Intersectionality

We recognize that no one person is just one identity.

We demand change, ensureing all intersectional needs are met.

We strive to center the needs and experiences of the most marginalized members of our communities. This includes partnerships and shared efforts with other progressive movements that have traditionally been isolated.

Accountability

We believe in community accountability and tirelessly strive to be transparent within our communities.

We offer open meetings, community education, and social outreach.

These engagements highlight our efforts and accomplishments as well as socially relevant community stories so that we stay accountable for what we do. We welcome constructive feedback. We respect the power and vulnerability in all that we do.

Liberation

We pursue the liberation for all oppressed persons in Nevada & beyond.

Equality and policy must create lasting and meaningful growth.

We engage in creative change at all levels: individual, interpersonal, cultural, institutional & systemic. Growth should nurture thriving communities where persons live freely and authentically.
