Third Act Nevada invites you to “Defending Democracy in Our Third Act,” featuring Bill McKibben, Rebecca Solnit, and Cisco Aguilar.

About this event

Third Act Nevada invites you to participate in Defend Democracy Events to mobilize a huge turnout in Nevada to help progressives win! Join one of Third Act Nevada’s in-person events with Bill McKibben and Rebecca Solnit in the Reno area on October 28 and/or 10/29.  

We need to elect people who believe in voting rights, free and fair elections, and climate change; not people who deny climate change or want to steal elections. Nevadans and people nearby Nevada are welcome!

Please be up-to-date with your COVID vaccination and bring a mask.

What: “Defending Democracy in our Third Act,”  featuring Bill McKibben, Rebecca Solnit, and Cisco Aguilar

When: Friday, October 28, 5 – 7 pm PT

Where: Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northern Nevada, 780  Del Monte Lane, Reno, NV

Please RSVP here.

Thanks to our collective efforts, we defeated the election stealers when they tried to make it harder to vote in Washoe County.  Let’s build on that momentum and win in Nevada this November!
