Our communities are stronger when we own them together. That’s why we focus heavily on civic health – the social connectedness, community engagement, confidence in institutions, and political involvement that ties a place together and fortifies our shared civic life.
On Feb. 4, Civic Nebraska’s Amanda Barker and Daniel Bennett hosted a public discussion about the 2020 Nebraska Civic Health Index. The Index is produced every five years by Civic Nebraska, the NU Public Policy Center, and the National Conference on Citizenship and is designed as a free resource for our state’s communities to study, reflect on, and use as a guide to strengthen.
Civic Nebraska sustains our state’s civic fabric with training and programming for towns, cities, neighborhoods, and citizens. We support people to be connected, informed, and engaged in their communities and state. When we are more connected to one another and to institutions, we are better positioned to solve local problems.
