NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada Issues Endorsements for Nevada State Assembly

More that 38,000 members statewide to mobilize to keep pro-choice majority in Nevada State Assembly


Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada announced their slate of endorsed candidates running for Nevada’s State Assembly seats in the 2018 cycle.

“Nevadans overwhelmingly support a woman’s decision to make her own medical decisions, which is why we deserve to have representatives in the state legislature who will fight to protect and expand reproductive freedom,” said Caroline Mello Roberson, State Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada. “During the 2017 legislative session, NARAL worked with the pro-choice majority in the Nevada State Assembly to pass landmark legislation aimed at expanding access to reproductive health care including protecting and expanding affordable birth control.  In order to continue making gains towards full reproductive freedom for Nevada women, we are committed to fighting alongside our endorsed candidates for Assembly throughout the 2018 cycle.”
