New polling data will reveal attitudes of Nevada Hispanic and African American women about family economic security policies—such as child care, paid leave and paid sick days, and equal pay.

Ahead of the Nevada primary on June 14, the Center for American Progress and Make it Work will host a news conference and discussion with Sharie Johnson, reporter from 8 News NOW and a parent ambassador from Make it Work urging all candidates to make high-quality child care a top priority.
