A CHAMPION FOR WORKING FAMILIES
In 2020, Amy Vilela led the charge for Bernie Sanders' landslide victory in the Nevada caucuses, and she's fought in the trenches of the political revolution to elect progressive champions like Representatives Cori Bush and Jamaal Bowman.
Now in 2022, she's running for a 100% grassroots, people-powered campaign for Congress in Las Vegas to represent Nevada's First District because we deserve more.
AMY'S REASON WHY
In 2015, Amy’s 22-year-old daughter, Shalynne, died a painful and needless death at the hands of our country's broken, profit-driven healthcare system after she was turned away at a local emergency room—all simply because she could not provide adequate proof of insurance. The last thing Amy told Shalynne, as she held her dying body in her arms, was that she would not die in vain.
Amy knows she can’t save Shalynne, but her death was a reminder that we are all only as safe as the most vulnerable among us, and Amy will never stop fighting for those lives that we still can save.

Powered by the People
Amy is an accountant by trade, and prior to getting into politics, she was a CFO, so she knows exactly what the private corporations who influence and control our social safety net, our prisons, our military, and every other sector of our lives they can get their hands on are motivated by: the pursuit of profit.
She also knows firsthand the human cost of that mindless greed, and the role money in politics played in her daughter Shalynne's death at the hand of our profit-driven healthcare system.
That's why she doesn't—and won't ever—accept a single dime of corporate money, instead relying 100% on individual, small-dollar, grassroots donors from regular, working people like you!

NEVADA'S NEW FIRST DISTRICT
A CITY ON THE FRONTLINES
Las Vegas is the fastest growing, fastest warming city in the country and we’re rapidly running out of water. We’re home to the highest per capita undocumented population nationwide & have been among the hardest hit by both the Great Recession and Covid.
Voters are sick & tired of status quo leaders who’re nowhere to be seen. In 2022, NV-01 is ready to stand together & demand more.
