Received a right to sue letter for sexual harassment against this agency after being fired for filing a witness report for two co-workers. It receives lots of federal dollars intended to improve the lives of people with disabilities, but they have no visible online 990 results nor are they a member-based organization that is transparent in their operations. I did not sue, because it is THE protection and advocacy agency for the state of Nevada, but it does very little legal work, mostly just social work.
