Today the City of Las Vegas plans to take a stand against systemic racism.

The city council is considering a resolution that condemns discrimination in healthcare.

The New York Times reports black Americans receive less care and often worse care than white Americans.

If passed, North Las Vegas will join the governor and the Nevada Legislature calling racism a public health crisis.
