Happy Monday, Nebraskans. We hope your weekend – and the warm temperatures in most areas of our state – helped lift your spirits. Our outlook definitely was raised on Saturday as we participated in a Virtual Civic Saturday. For those unfamiliar with Civic Saturdays, here’s a link that describes what they’re all about.

This most recent gathering, hosted remotely by Seattle-based Citizen University in an era of physical distancing, came to us via YouTube live. If you missed it, don’t worry – you can watch it in its entirety right here.

Eric Liu‘s inspired and inspiring message reflected on what it really means to be in it together, what other curves need flattening, and to what normal, exactly, we’d like to return. Then, the event closed with a call to action: Using the hashtag #CivicLoveNote, share what brings you hope during these difficult days.

What do you love about your community?

What joy are you finding?

Is there a unifying message you would like to share with others across the country?

This week, Americans are tweeting, posting to Facebook and Instagram, blogging, and sharing photos and videos that address one or more of those questions. You can, too.

We want to help gather and amplify every #CivicLoveNote we can from friends, supporters, and all Nebraskans. Today and in the coming days, take a few minutes to share your thoughts (and don’t forget the hashtag!).  You can tag us on social media, too, to be sure we can help spread your Civic Love Note to the rest of the nation. If you’d like to share via email, feel free to drop us a line at info@civicnebraska.org and we’ll share it out for you.

Let’s show how strong our communities can be, Nebraska. Let’s share a #CivicLoveNote today.

Thanks for all that you do,

Steve Smith
Director of Communications
