ACLU policy director to speak at Dems luncheon

Holly Welborn, policy director at the ACLU of Nevada, will be the featured speaker at Monday’s Democratic luncheon. She will speak in opposition to Question 1, the Marsy’s Law Crime Victims Rights Amendment, which is on the November ballot as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. A “no” vote would retain existing victim rights added to the Nevada constitution by a 1996 ballot measure in lieu of replacing them with a more extensive list of victim rights and specific enforcement provisions together known as a “Marsy’s Law.”

This event is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 3, at Carson City’s Round Table Pizza, on Retail Drive just off College Parkway. An all-you-can-eat buffet lunch is available. All are welcome.

Sponsored by the Democratic Men’s Committee, these luncheons help defer expenses at Carson’s Democratic HQ while affording the community an opportunity to engage with candidates, office holders, subject matter experts and public policy advocates in an unstructured, open-ended and informal atmosphere. Donations of $5 or more gratefully accepted but are not required. For information, contact Rich Dunn at 434-8783 or
