Seal of the State of Nevada

WHEREAS, In October 1994, the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled and resolved that the fourth Sunday of July shall be established as "Parents' Day" to be recognized as a recurring, perennial day of commemoration; and

WHEREAS, as a child's first role models, parents shape the character of those who will help to build the future of our nation, and on Parent's Day, we pay tribute to the hard work and sacrifices of the millions of devoted parents who provide unconditional love, education, and guidance to their children; and

WHEREAS, we encourage all parents to commit themselves to create a nurturing home environment for the sound development of their children as healthy, well-adjusted citizens in the community; and

WHEREAS, The State of Nevada supports programs sponsored by the federal government as well as local faith-based organizations or community groups that provide resources to help parents raise children of moral conviction and good character; and

WHEREAS, Parents' Day is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the unique and powerful bond that exists between parent and child. On this day, let us remember and honor those who provide us with daily support and loving guidance, guiding us to become responsible and contributing citizens; and

WHEREAS, strong families are one of the foundations for healthy, well-adjusted states and the nation because the values that promote peace in the world are a direct extension of the values that promote peace within individual families; and

WHEREAS, the State of Nevada is committed to creating a work environment that is supportive of families and continues to work to advance policies that allow for parents in our job force to have a healthy balance in their personal and professional lives;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim July 24, 2022, as
