On April 1st, 2015, seven Nevada students serving in a yearlong Fellowship with the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) spent their spring break lobbying state senators to support energy efficiency in Nevada.
90% of 8th graders know that climate change is real and human-caused, while 90% of Republican senators deny it. In response, ACE students visited our nation's capital to speak directly to their senators.
ACE will be introducing the 2014-2015 Action Fellows from our regions across the country. Check out some our brief interviews with the Reno-Tahoe Region's new Action Fellows below. Make sure to check back later to follow their great work this year.
Alicia Wong is an ACE Action Fellow who is writing a monthly blog series on her experiences with her fellowship. Last month, she spoke to the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees about the Idle Free Schools Campaign.
