Desert Power Priority Kickoff
Wednesday, July 27th @ 7:00 PM
The western United States have been in a megadrought for over 20 years and Lake Mead is at critically low levels. At the same time, climate change has made Las Vegas the fastest-warming city in the United States. In this campaign, we will work to reduce water waste by advocating for a progressive water rate structure at the Clark County Commission. We will also plant native, water-tolerant trees to reduce “heat islands” in underserved communities, fight to protect ecosystems by promoting rooftop solar instead large solar plants, and provide political education on ecosocialist issues in the Las Vegas valley. Join us to help map out our first steps!
About LVDSA's Cultivating Desert Power: Water Conservation Priority Campaign
Cultivating Desert Power: Water Conservation will have a primary goal of lobbying the Clark County Commission to change the Las Vegas Valley Water District’s fee structure to be a true progressive fee structure to discourage heavy water users, and to reassign the proceeds of the existing sales tax water fee subsidy to increase affordable housing in Clark County.
