Las Vegas, NV – Earlier today, UNITE HERE’s Culinary & Bartenders Unions in Nevada hosted an informational Town Hall with Senator Kamala Harris and union members to discuss issues important to working families.

The Town Hall was the first in a series of events that UNITE HERE’s Culinary Union will be hosting in Las Vegas with leading Democratic candidates in the 2020 U.S. presidential race to engage political leaders on issues such as: Creating more good union jobs, healthcare, immigration, and more.

“In Nevada and across the country, UNITE HERE is united in one common goal: One Job Should Be Enough—enough to go to the doctor, raise a family, retire with dignity, and live the American Dream,” said D. Taylor, President of UNITE HERE. “We need someone in the White House, who will fight alongside us to make sure that this is a reality for all working people in this country.” 

Las Vegas is home to UNITE HERE’s largest locals—UNITE HERE Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165, representing more than 60,000 members in the Las Vegas and Reno. In Nevada, for nearly 85 years, UNITE HERE’s Culinary Union has built an organizing powerhouse that has made the critical difference in local and statewide races for political candidates supporting working families. UNITE HERE has committed to a substantial investment for its GOTV work, with major communications and grassroots voter outreach programs in Nevada, Arizona, Florida, and other key states in play in the 2020 election.

Senator Kamala Harris: “For decades in Nevada, UNITE HERE’s Culinary Union has led the fight for economic, health care, and immigration justice. The Culinary Union deserves an Organizer in Chief who will restore justice to the White House in 2020. The fight for justice is about all of us, and when we overcome the injustices we face, we will unlock the promise of America and the potential of every working American. I'm running for president because I believe in this potential, and I look forward to continuing these conversations about issues important to Nevada caucus-goers."
