  • Conducted Business Development and Personal Financial Management workshops
  • Registered over 13,000 new voters statewide as part of the NAACP National Voter Fund and the NAACP Nevada Election Empowerment program
  • Received recognition as one of the top NAACP branches for outstanding programs during two national NAACP Annual Conventions
  • Participated on advisory committees from city, county and state governments, the Washoe County School District and local law enforcement agencies to provide insight on diversity issues
  • Continued to fight for equal opportunity in housing, employment and public accommodations in Northern Nevada
