Nevada Conservation League Announces Endorsements for 2024 Election Cycle 

NEVADA — Today, the Nevada Conservation League, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced endorsements in legislative and local races for the 2024 election cycle. The diverse group of environmental leaders is committed to strong climate action that better protects Nevada’s land, air, water, and health. 

Nevada Conservation League’s endorsements for the 2024 election cycle were issued after evaluations of the candidate questionnaires, interviews, and if applicable, legislative track record as determined by the 2023 Conservation Scorecard. Evaluations considered a broad range of conservation issues, including climate action, clean energy advancement, wildlife and public lands protection, and addressing inequitable environmental impacts on communities of color.  

Nevada Conservation League Deputy Director Christi Cabrera-Georgeson said:

“In the face of the serious challenges caused by the climate crisis, Nevada is at a crucial turning point where the choices we make now will have a significant impact on Nevadans’ future. We endorse candidates who show a strong commitment to creating a future where our environment is protected, where our communities can thrive, and where our democracy remains strong and dependable. And as we face more wildfires, scorching heat waves, and ongoing droughts in our state, the urgency of our work becomes even clearer — we can’t afford to ignore these issues. That’s why it’s important to elect leaders who understand the issues at hand and who are committed to protecting Nevada’s diverse communities. Together, we can secure the conservation leaders we need to advocate for a healthier Nevada.”
