The 2018, 15 Most Influential Hispanics in Southern Nevada are people involved and show their presence in the community. It is very difficult to select 15 individuals from such a large group of Influential Professional Hispanics to choose from.
But this year, we are going into the barrios of Las Vegas, the schools, community centers, the business board rooms, community meetings, to find the leadership who unselfishly giving back to our community. These are special people in our community who care and have a passion to fight when they know change is needed, they fight to protect the community from laws that are not right for Nevada. They help thousands of children, senior citizens, and working families when in need.
