“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”  -Margaret Mead

The goal of researching and endorsing candidates is to determine whether a candidate is a feminist, the depth of their commitment to NOW’s core issues, and whether they will be an ally in the future.

Nevada NOW partnered with its national affiliate to identify Nevada candidates for federal office that have upheld the feminist tenets we have long fought for, and show a commitment to furthering the feminist cause once elected.

As the primary continued Nevada NOW was inundated with requests for endorsements. We are humbled by the showing of forward-thinking, feminist candidates looking for sponsorship from grassroots groups like Nevada NOW.

The continual assaults on women from the current administration have inspired a record number of progressive citizens to run for office in Nevada. To encourage this unprecedented level of democratic participation, Nevada NOW has decided to sponsor a multitude of candidates in the 2018 primary, by marking qualified, feminist candidates as NOW Approved.

We encourage you to vote for the Nevada NOW Approved candidate that speaks to the specific issues of your community. A Nevada NOW Approved candidate is a quality choice for any citizen that believes in the equal rights of all people within their community.

In solidarity,

Nevada NOW
