LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto is inviting former victims of domestic violence to apply for a vacant position on the state Committee on Domestic Violence.
Masto says survivors provide an important voice for the nine-member committee. It oversees treatment programs for people who commit domestic violence.
Members include a mental health professional, law enforcer, prosecutor, advocate, judge and domestic violence victims and survivors.
The panel meets quarterly at various places in northern and southern Nevada. Travel reimbursement is provided.
Masto spokeswoman Beatriz Aguirre (ah-GEE'-rae) says applications have to be submitted by May 15.
