CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) – Remembering those who are often forgotten. Monday night, a vigil was held in honor of 409 homeless Nevadans who died from 2017 to 2018.
ACTIONN, a local non-profit organization seeking to cultivate a social justice movement in Northern Nevada, hosted the event not only to recognize the homeless who died, but to grab the attention of lawmakers.
The event started with a candlelight vigil at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. Then local faith leaders and impacted residents walked to the Nevada Legislature with candles in hand.
