Welcome to Civic Nebraska.

For meaningful progress

we must stand together in mutual responsibility. We must stand out and create the world we imagine. We must stand guard to protect democracy. And most of all, we must stand with purpose. We must STAND FAST.

In Reclaiming We, Civic Nebraska outlines twenty straightforward steps anyone can take to co-create a more vibrant, informed, civically healthy community. From highlighting the ripple effect of small acts to the power of mass social movements, Reclaiming We is an essential field guide for engaged democratic citizens on the road ahead.
