Meet the Collective Impact Lincoln team

Here are the dedicated staffers who are listening, advocating, organizing and making Lincoln's neighborhoods vibrant.

Nancy PetittoProgram Manager

I love working with teams, whether it’s event planning, project management, or leadership development initiatives. In my previous roles, I’ve managed large groups, collaborated with different community and business partners, and cultivated team development. I am passionate about the work of helping to lift Lincoln residents to a better and more just quality of life. Collective Impact Lincoln is an amazing opportunity to engage in the necessary conversations to create positive change.

José Lemus, Civic Nebraska Community Organizer

I am a graduate of the University of Nebraska and have a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and global studies. As the community organizer for Civic Nebraska, I work with Nebraska Appleseed and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization to fulfill the objectives of the Collective Impact Lincoln program. This role combines my affinity for meeting new people with my professional interest in researching the intersection of data and public policy.

Isabel Salas, South of Downtown CDO Community Organizer

I am from Lexington and a graduate of the University of Nebraska. I have a passion for advocacy and activism, which are tied to my political science, women’s and gender studies, and global studies major. I’ve had several internships and volunteer experience with Nebraska nonprofits. My hometown  boasts of one of the largest Latinx populations in Nebraska, and has taught me the power of welcoming and inclusive communities.
