Nevada Voters Approve Effort to Guarantee Victims’ Rights

LAS VEGAS, NV - Consider it a victory for every Nevadan. Tonight, the voters of our state have approved Question 1 which will strengthen and expand victims’ rights in the state constitution.  The YES vote follows the approval of state lawmakers in two separate legislative sessions in 2015 and 2017 through the advocacy of state and leaders, businesses, advocacy organizations, law enforcement, and legal experts across Nevada. Together we have worked to bring awareness to residents about the lack of enforceable guarantees for Nevada victims of crime during the judicial process.
