BOLD indicates openly LGBTQ+ candidateEndorsement Process and GuidelinesSilver State Equality endorses viable candidates running for local office, statewide offices, the state legislature and Congress who have a proven track record of supporting equal rights and legal protections for LGBTQ+ Nevadans and who are committed to advancing these goals in their capacity as elected officials. Except in rare circumstances, Silver State Equality only endorses exceptional LGBTQ+ candidates in local races with the goal of supporting the careers of exceptional leaders in our community to build a bench of strong candidates for higher office. In races for State Assembly and Senate, United States Congress and Senate, and Nevada State Constitutional Offices, Silver State Equality considers endorsement of all candidates that meet our screening and endorsement criteria. ENDORSEMENT PROCESS Silver State Equality conducts field research to determine candidates’ records on LGBTQ+ equality and social justice and will extend invitations to participate in the endorsement process based on past record, viability, and Silver State Equality priority considerations. Endorsement by Silver State Equality requires completion of a candidate questionnaire and candidate interviews. Candidates who are interested in our endorsement should contact André Wade at firstname.lastname@example.org as early as possible to inform us of your candidacy. KEY CANDIDATE CONSIDERATIONS Candidate must be 100% in support of LGBTQ+ equality to be considered for endorsement. Candidate must be viable and able to run a competitive campaign. Candidate’s prior depth of work in support of full LGBTQ equality is a key factor. Is the candidate openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning? Will endorsement diversify and expand support for LGBTQ+ equality and social justice? NOTE: A candidate who is not 100% in support of full LGBTQ+ equality is not eligible for endorsement.
