Nevada Conservation League launches community art activation highlighting the urgent need for climate action, justice, and clean energy jobs
RENO, NEVADA — On Friday, August 20, join Nevada Conservation League as we team up with local artist Jenie Villanueva at City Plaza park to participate in a community art activation connecting Reno’s urgent need to address the unhealthy air quality as the result of out-of-control wildfires in the state with the stories of the people and the communities who are impacted by the climate crisis.
This activation comes while record-breaking temperatures, out of control wildfires, and historic droughts have impacted Nevada. It also emphasizes the sentiments of the 25th annual Lake Tahoe Summit where policymakers, private sector stakeholders, and community leaders meet to collaboratively address environmental, infrastructure, and economic challenges facing Tahoe Basin. Tomorrow’s art activation is another way people are coming together across the country to call for bold climate infrastructure investments that deliver clean energy, jobs, and justice.
