Walking To Fix Our Democracy: Lincoln

May 29 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Rick Hubbard, an 82-year-old Vermont man,  has been walking across the United States and having conversations about making U.S. democracy more inclusive, responsive, and effective for all. In May, Rick has been putting one foot in front of another across Nebraska, and now he’s zeroing in on our Capital City. His journey will eventually end in January 2025 in Washington, D.C.
Join us at 2:30 pm CDT on Wednesday, May 29, at Hamann Rose Garden at Antelope Park in Lincoln – where we’ll meet up with Rick for a leg of his journey through the Star City. We’ll walk together to Shelter No. 1 at Antelope Park, where we’ll all have a chance to hear about Rick’s adventure so far, the planks of a small-d democratic reform platform, and learn about efforts in Nebraska to make democracy fairer and more representative for all.
Here’s our local route. We’ll start by walking north along 27th Street toward Capitol Parkway. Then we’ll head east on the Rock Island and Billy Wolff trails past the northern edge of the Lincoln Children’s Zoo. Once passing A Street, we’ll walk a short distance to Shelter No. 1 in Antelope Park.
