Laura Hernandez

Executive Director 
Nevada Alliance for Student Diversity

Laura Hernandez is the Executive Director of Nevada Alliance for Student Diversity. For nearly a decade Laura has worked tirelessly to secure rights for transgender students in Nevada, working with legislators in 2017 to help draft and advocate for Senate Bill 225, a law requiring all schools in Nevada to implement a policy to address the rights and needs of gender diverse students. Laura then consulted with the Nevada Department of Education to develop the regulations based on SB225, and with the Clark County School district to write and implement their gender diversity policy.

Laura is the former Executive Director of Gender Justice Nevada and co-founder of the Gender Diverse Youth and Family Services Program, the first and only comprehensive wrap-around program in Nevada for gender diverse youth and their families. Laura is frequently called upon to help institutions think more expansively about the gender diversity of all children and teens, and ways to create a safer and more inclusive environment. Laura has experience with grant writing as part of her leadership roles at several non-profit organizations.
