Liz Becker is an environmental scientist, lactation consultant, and former teacher from a family of public school educators. Liz is running for Nevada State Senate to be a voice for her constituents, not corporate donors. For the past 15 years, she and her family have lived, worked, and volunteered in this community. Liz is the former Nevada Chapter Leader for Moms Demand Action for Gunsense in America and most recently worked in the Conservation Department at the Southern Nevada Water Authority. She is married to Michael, an Air Force veteran, and they have three children: two adults and one third grader.
Liz is passionate about climate change mitigation - including drought management and the transition to a society free from fossil fuels - properly funding and improving the public education system, and ensuring that every Nevadan has access to quality, affordable healthcare, including mental health and addiction recovery services. For far too long, our politics have been dominated by privileged, monied interests. Liz knows that true power lies in the hands of everyday Americans and we must stand up and take that power back. She is ready to do the work to be the change.
