Quick Note: Kimi’s Running

kimicoleAt Saturday’s NV Rural Democratic Caucus and NSDP Central Committee meetings, Douglas County Chair, Kimi Cole announced that she will be actively running to chair the Nevada State Democratic Party, a vote which will take place at the March 4th NSDP Central Cmtee Mtg.

Here’s a quote from Kimi Cole that perfectly sums her up:

“I’ve been accused of being unrealistically optimistic at times, which I wear as a badge of honor. Not only might we be going after Moby Dick in a rowboat, I plan to take the tarter sauce.”

With Roberta Lange stepping down and leaving the election as an ‘Open Election’ for chair, we need to support one of our own and mobilize behind Kimi to assure Party support going forward for ALL of Nevada, not just its urban centers.

TAG to present “Transgender 101”

transgender-symbolTransgender is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. That sometimes arbitrary “assignment” can involve challenges, not just for the individual, but for those with whom they regularly interface. Transgender Allies Group (TAG) President Brock Maylath and Nevada Stonewall Democratic Caucus President Kimi Cole have been scheduled to present “Transgender 101,” a popular talk that explains the basics of what being transgender is … and what it’s not.

“TAG” is a network of allies providing education, resources, counseling, advocacy and support of transgender individuals and families in order to ensure equality, integration, and an exceptional quality of life for all transgender people in Northern Nevada.
