On Sept. 26, Nebraskans came together to celebrate our shared civic spirit with Civic Saturday. With music from Jimmy Steinauer, readings from Amanda Barker and Kathy Smith, original poetry from Shayla Salinas-Sadowski, and a civic sermon from Steve Smith. Then, participants gathered on Zoom for Civic Circles, small-group discussions in which participants deliberated on the question of how to expand our definition of “We.”

Missed the gathering when it was broadcast live? No problem! You can watch anytime on YouTube. Here’s the virtual gathering in its entirety:

Thanks to everyone for making the gathering such a powerful experience. We’ll be hosting a second gathering soon! Our next Civic Saturday will be 11 a.m. Oct. 17, 2020, on YouTube Live. See you then!
