Rep. Steven Horsford Joins Our Stay In and Speak Out for Climate Action!
2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This year, we aren’t playing around. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we aren’t holding our happy, crowded, buzzing, and bubbling annual Play-In for Climate Action in Washington, DC. Instead, we’re asking legislators across the country to join us for virtual events and conversations with their constituents to talk about air pollution, climate action and what we can do to fight the climate crisis where we live.
On Wednesday, August 12, at 2PM PT/5PM ET, please join Congressman Steven Horsford (NV-04) on our Facebook page for a conversation with our Nevada team and a few of our littlest activists from the congressman’s home district.
Congressman Horsford is the first African American to represent Nevada in Congress. He recently voted to pass the Great American Outdoors Act, bipartisan conservation legislation that provides permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and establishes the National Parks and Public Land Legacy Restoration Fund to address the maintenance backlog at our national parks.
Prior to serving in Congress, Rep. Horsford served in the Nevada State Senate, where he was a climate champion, passing renewable energy legislation that positioned Nevada to become a leader in the green economy.
