The Human Rights Campaign Holds Annual Dinner in Las Vegas
Las Vegas, May 13, 2023 – The Human Rights Campaign held its 16th Annual Dinner at Caesar’s Palace Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday evening. Each year, the event celebrates the work of trailblazers and community leaders who have dedicated their lives to uplift, support, and secure equal rights for all LGBTQ+ citizens. This year’s honorees were Eduardo Cordova, who received the Equality Award, and Larry Edwards, who received the Trailblazer for Equality Award.
People from all walks of life attended the event, from members of the LGBTQ+ community to allies and friends who believe in equality for everyone. Distinguished supporters included national leaders such as U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen, who vow to “continue to fight for the inclusive, thoughtful, and concrete changes that true progress requires.” Also echoing that sentiment was Congressman Steven Horsford, who is “committed to standing with the HRC and working together to promote equality, justice, and fairness for all.”
Esteemed local leader Antonio Accornero supported the cause by purchasing a table at the event. His guests included LVMPD Assistant Sheriff Sasha Larkin, LVMPD Captain Michelle Tavarez, and LVMPD Lieutenant Jessica Wert. “As a business owner, I understand the importance of workplace equality, allowing all Americans to have the opportunity to care for their families, earn a living, and be safe at home, at work, and in the community,” said Mr. Accornero. “But more importantly, I believe in the basic human right for every individual to live and love as they choose.”
UWSN’s Women United Group Holds Annual Fashion Show Luncheon
Las Vegas, April 22, 2023 – Over 500 local leaders joined United Way of Southern Nevada and Women United for the fashion and shopping event of the season during their annual fashion show luncheon on Saturday. This year’s theme was “Women Reimagined,” empowering women in the workplace, in education, in the community, and all sectors of society. Celebrating the impact of local female leaders, proceeds of the event will help forge pathways out of poverty for local women, children, families, and individuals in Southern Nevada.
“Women United is one of the most important giving groups associated with the United Way of Southern Nevada,” said UWSN President and CEO Julian High. “For the last 16 years, they have invested $3.4 million into the Southern Nevada community and given over 8,000 volunteer hours. For this year’s event, they are focusing on teaching women how to reimagine themselves in these new times, in order to bring new energy and enthusiasm to the work they do for themselves and for their community.”
911 Dispatchers Awarded for Outstanding Work and Dedication
Las Vegas, April 11, 2023 – The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department celebrated National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week with an award ceremony Tuesday, recognizing the invaluable work of 911 Dispatchers. The LVMPD processes over three million calls a year and services all of Las Vegas and unincorporated Clark County. As a result, Police Dispatcher Professionals have a direct impact on the lives and safety of the citizens of Las Vegas and the officers of the LVMPD.
Sheriff Kevin McMahill, who was on hand to present the awards, made it clear how important it is to recognize these incredible individuals. “The mental toughness required to successfully be a part of the LVMPD Communications Bureau cannot be overstated,” said McMahill. “You are the first responders in times of crisis, and you always show bravery in the face of danger. You don’t often get the recognition you deserve, and that’s why we’re here today. On behalf of the entire Department, I thank you for your service.”
Las Vegas Businessman Partners with the LVMPD to Form Coalition
Las Vegas, April 05, 2023 – Las Vegas entrepreneur Antonio Accornero met with Captain David Sims of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department on Wednesday to discuss starting a new community initiative. Sims heads the Summerlin Area Command (SAC), the city’s 10th and newest patrol substation, covering 77 square miles and serving the rapidly growing Summerlin Master Planned Community.
Captain Sims called on Mr. Accornero to form and head a business coalition among community leaders. The plan is to start in Summerlin and eventually create coalitions across the entire city, allowing police to work hand in hand with local businesses to fight crime. “We don’t want this to be ‘The Metro Show’,” said Captain Sims. “The LVMPD will be here to partner with local businesses to help make their neighborhoods safer, but it is up to business owners to take the initiative and lead the way.”
