Glen Lerner Pays it Forward
Glen Lerner feels blessed to have been presented with opportunities that have made him the success that he is today. He believes in paying forward these blessing through acts of gratitude by giving something back to help make a positive community and social changes. Glen Lerner hopes that other business and individuals who can will also get involved and show an interest in making a difference and offering positive contributions within their own communities. Together the power of many joining together can make a difference.
Due to multiple shootings in the neighborhood over the past three months, tensions run high in a central Las Vegas neighborhood. To help lighten the dark cloud that seems to have fallen over this community, the Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) felt compelled to put together a community outreach event just for them. As Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys actively seeks ways to help make Las Vegas the best place to live and work, our team jumped at the opportunity to give back and get involved in this community BBQ.

- Performance by DJ Thump;
- Several guest speakers from LVMPD and the Clark County Housing Authority;
- Cruise for two raffle drawing;

More About Women’s Resources Medical Center of Southern Nevada
The Women’s Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada has provided pregnancy services to women for more than 30 years. The faith-based organization is committed to reducing the demand for abortion. WRMCSN does this by supporting pregnant women and their families when they need it most.
Statistics from the Center for Disease Control and the Alan Guttmacher Institute indicate that 93% of all abortions occur because of social and economic reasons. In addition, 50% of women who have had an abortion in the past are more likely to have another.
WRMCSN advocates and champions have personally met with some of these women since 1985. Through these interactions, the Center found that the majority of them would not choose abortion. If they knew that had someone to assist them they may have chosen differntly.
These one-on-one discussions resulted in the intercession in the lives of over 40,000 babies. These babies now have the opportunity to make their own life choices. They can grow older and choose whether or not to grow their own families thru adoption or birthing children of their own.
