Great ideas won’t wait. There is no magic formula to making an idea a reality; it’s simply a matter of being committed to see it through.
Civic Nebraska is poised to take our ideas to new heights. In 2019, we will widen our reach in Civic Health Programs. Collective Impact Lincoln will accelerate into action in the Star City’s neighborhoods by transforming spaces to increase community connection and tackling barriers to housing affordability. We will continue to connect more Nebraskans with their state government, expand our Youth Civic Leadership opportunities, and launch new civic initiatives for Nebraska.
That’s just for starters. Rest assured that we will continue to make new connections and take untraveled paths forward, toward a strong and health democracy in the Cornhusker State. Because when an idea presents itself, there is no notion of later. Together, we’re turning those ideas into action.
