CARSON CITY, NV - September 20, 2018

Governor Brian Sandoval today is encouraging state employees and all Nevadans to wear Vegas Strong clothing on 1 October, in honor and remembrance of the victims and survivors of the 1 October events nearly a year ago.

“Our great state has shown the country and indeed the world what Vegas Strong is every day for nearly a year,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “The events of 1 October affected so many and I think it is only right to show the world again how Vegas Strong Nevada is on the one year anniversary.”

Sandoval is also reminding anyone who was present during the 1 October shooting to submit an application to the Nevada Victims of Crime Program before the deadline of 1 October.

“Even if someone is not sure they will ever seek services as a result of 1 October, it is important to apply so that should they decide later to seek care, they will qualify for eligible program benefits,” Sandoval added.
