Vote Nevada Update 4/24/2021

Vote Nevada Supporters,

We had a very informative meeting today about birds, our ecosystems, and the connections to climate change.  In addition to hearing about how drought is decimating the insects and seed-plants birds feed on while migrating, we also heard about the impact of lights left on at night. You can read about a “lights out” initiative in Philadelphia here: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9355977/Philly-dim-lights-make-safer-birds-flight.html?ito=email_share_article-top

After chatting with Dr. Martha Desmond, NMSU, and Paul Rodriguez, President Red Rock Audubon, as well as with our meeting attendees, we decided a “lights out” project would fit in with our Summer Civics Festival.  This initiative includes citizen science, public policy, and environmental stewardship.

Upcoming events include our May 22nd meeting, via Zoom, 9-11 am, on how mental and behavioral health policy intersects with other important issues, such as gun control, education funding, climate change, and workforce development.  If we do not address mental and behavioral health funding and policies, we will never really solve the other issues.  You can RSVP here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0kf-6oqjgqG9xaz5xTzhkI9hdvGGQoqA4T

More information about the Summer Civics Festival will be coming soon!~

Thank you for being Nevadans with me,

Sondra
