This spring, Civic Nebraska will honor five Nebraskans whose acts build a more modern and robust democracy. Our annual Strengthening Democracy Awards celebration is a time to highlight the work of everyday people – and here’s how you can nominate someone!
Through March 6, Civic Nebraska is accepting nominations for awards in five categories. The winners will be recognized at a special celebration at 5:30 p.m. on April 13 at the Livestock Exchange Ballroom in Omaha.
The categories are:
Jan Gradwohl Memorial Defender of Democracy
A Nebraskan who leads change in their community by connecting others to the power of voting. This Nebraskan spreads faith in our elections, stands up and speaks out, and/or volunteers in defense of all Nebraskans’ right to cast ballots without unnecessary barriers.
To nominate a Nebraskan, please go here. Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. CDT March 6.
This year’s celebration will include a keynote address from Desmond Meade, a national voting rights activist and advocate who led the successful re-enfranchisement of more than 1.4 million Florida voters in 2018. To register to attend the 2023 Strengthening Democracy Awards, click here.
