2nd Annual #WritersResist Political Poetry Performance

Event Dates and Times

1/20/2018
West Street Market, 148 West Street, Reno, NV 89501
Led by the City of Reno’s incumbent Poet Laureate Lindsay Wilson, an eclectic group of Reno-Tahoe writers will take the stage at West Street Market on Saturday, January 20 for the second annual Writers Resist event. Performers will include students and faculty from the UNR MFA program, Sierra Nevada College, Western Nevada College, and members of the Spoken Views Collective.

The event is part of an international movement started by New York poet Erin Belieu in 2017 as a concerted way of speaking up against threats to democracy and basic civil liberties after the election. The movement sparked events in more than 100 cities worldwide last January, including Reno, where regional writers delivered powerful words to a packed house at The Holland Project.

Like last year’s event, Reno’s second annual Writers Resist reading is free and open to the public, with donations encouraged to benefit the ACLU of Nevada’s work to protect DACA/Dreamers. Donations of nonperishable food items for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada are also appreciated.

REMSA Free Car Seat Check Point

Event Dates and Times

1/20/2018
Babies R Us, 4869 Kietzke Lane, Reno
REMSA’s Point of Impact program encourages parents to ensure their car seats are properly installed. A properly installed car seat can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71 percent. When visiting the checkpoint, parents should bring their child(ren) and car seat(s) and schedule about 30-45 minutes; longer for more than one seat. Staff and volunteers will check for obvious defects and determine whether the car seat appears on a national recall list. In addition, they will check the installation, correct any problems and provide education on the proper use and installation of the car seat.

This outreach program encourages parents to check the car seat to make sure it has all its parts, labels and instructions. It should also never have been involved in a crash. REMSA will help people register their car seat with the manufacturer if they have not done so already. Registration makes it easy for the manufacturer to contact the consumer in the event of a recall.
For additional information about this program and/or child safety seats, call 858-KIDS (858-5437) or visit our website at remsahealth.com.
