Brad Christian-Sallis has been named Civic Nebraska’s first-ever voting rights field director. Brad, who has been with Civic Nebraska as a voting rights policy organizer since 2017, will coordinate Civic Nebraska’s community organizing across the state to increase voter turnout.
Director of Voting Rights John Cartier made the announcement Monday. Brad begins his new duties — working with organizers to develop coordinated field plans to mobilize in key regions of the state on issues, as well as conducting robust get-out-the-vote efforts — immediately.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to grow our network of voting rights advocates and to help promote pro-voter policies across Nebraska,” he said. “I am especially eager to expand Team Voting Rights’ presence in Greater Nebraska.”
As field director, Brad will manage activities for Civic Nebraska’s community organizing and provide direct support for community members and coalition
Brad has always had a passion for empowering citizens and organizing them to act – something he can focus upon full-time in his new role, he said.
“I know this will be hard work, but one of my favorite quotes has always been ‘without a struggle, there can be no progress,’ by Frederick Douglass,” he said. “I can’t wait to see the progress we can make.”
