For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nevada

LAS VEGAS – The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Nevada issued the following statement from United States Attorney Jason M. Frierson in recognition of Black History Month:

“As our celebration of Black History Month comes to a close this year, I would like to acknowledge the generations that have come before us as well as those who continue their work advancing justice and equality in our country. The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Nevada has joined communities throughout Nevada to celebrate African American history and culture, and have paid tribute to individuals whose achievements impacted our community and society as a whole. We acknowledge individuals at all levels who work today to advance the Department of Justice’s mission to uphold the rule of law, keep our country safe, and protect civil rights.

I am humbled to serve as the first African American to hold the position of United States Attorney in the District of Nevada. As we strive to reflect the community that we serve, I am also proud that we have more African American Assistant United States Attorneys in the District of Nevada than ever before. It is an honor to work alongside dedicated Assistant United States Attorneys, professional staff, law enforcement partners, and community organizations to make Nevada a safer place to live and work.”
