Jill Derby, Former Democratic State Party Chair

"There’s my story in there, but more importantly, it’s about these five decades of important Nevada history that led to this significant event in 2018 and all that came out of it."

- Jill Derby, Former Democratic State Party Chair, discusses her newly published book, When You Dare to Say Yes, telling the story of advancing women’s gender equality, eventually leading to Nevada becoming the first state with a female-majority legislature. She also stresses the second major theme as the importance of everybody making their voice heard in a democracy and how it doesn’t work without citizen engagement.
