In Civic Nebraska's Summer 2018 Update, executive director and founder Adam Morfeld discusses progress toward a more modern and robust democracy for all.

Dear friends,

It’s obvious our democracy is going through a tumultuous time and our civic institutions are being tested and strained. Yet, we find encouragement and inspiration from our fellow Nebraskans. People are becoming more politically active. Citizens are becoming more civically engaged. Neighbors are becoming more connected to improve our communities, towns, cities, and even our level of discourse.

We see it every day at Civic Nebraska, whether it’s in the 1,000 students in our Youth Civic Leadership programs we serve daily; or in the communities who resolve to work together to strengthen our state’s civic fabric; or the hundreds of volunteer voting rights advocates who help us ensure Nebraska’s elections remain nonpartisan, modern, and accessible.

Civic Nebraska’s first decade has been marked by steady growth. In 2018, we’ve built upon that momentum by expanding our reach to create an engaged, informed society that upholds our democratic traditions. Take a look at Civic Nebraska’s 2018 Summer Update, which shares a few highlights from the first half of our tenth anniversary.

I hope you know how much your support means to all of us at Civic Nebraska. You are part of creating a future where all Nebraskans can realize the benefits of a modern, robust democracy. We’re all honored to stand with you to build, grow and defend it.

Sincerely,

Adam Morfeld, J.D., Executive Director and Founder
