CARSON CITY, Nev. — Dozens of faith leaders and community advocates will protest at the Capitol building in Carson City Monday - part of a 28-state event called the Higher Ground Moral Day of Action.

The group plans to deliver a petition to Gov. Brian Sandoval's office, supporting increased funding for child care in Nevada. The rally will call for action on living wages, union rights and racial justice.

A.J. Buhay, economic justice organizer with the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, helped bring this first-of-its-kind event to the state.

"We're uplifting issues from raising the minimum wage, expanding worker rights, immigrant and racial justice, and making sure that this coming election that they have a moral compass as we're all going to the voting booth this coming November,” Buhay said.

Buses of supporters will be arriving in Carson City from Reno and Las Vegas for the event, which starts at 11 a.m. on the steps of the Capitol.

The National Day of Moral Action grew from the Moral Monday movement started by the Reverend William J. Barber of North Carolina to fight extreme-right political organizing in that state.

Buhay said the idea is to lift up the voices of marginalized communities and inject compassion into the political realm.

"This is all about a moral revival,” Buhay said. "We’re going back to the idea that people and planet matter more than corporations and profit."

A national Moral Revival petition urges candidates for office to embrace policies like a $15 minimum wage and affordable health care, as well as to fight sexism, discrimination and attacks on voting rights.
