What’s next for Civic Nebraska
OUR YOUTH CIVIC LEADERSHIP WILL
›› Create new pathways to participation for K-12 students in their neighborhoods, communities, and state, both virtual and in-person.
›› Expand our created and curated curriculum for educators across Nebraska to help halt the “civic slide” among our youth.
›› Increase our number of service-oriented projects through the Service Learning Center of Excellence, based in Central Nebraska.
OUR CIVIC HEALTH PROGRAMS WILL
›› Host dozens of Capitol Experience Days for youth and community members across our state, including a new program for Lincoln Public Schools ninth-graders.
›› Build an understanding of Nebraskans’ concerns and hopes for the news and media climate with the Crossing Divides project. These insights will inform future projects and support smart, healthy media consumption.
›› Expand the use of Collective Impact Lincoln’s Equitable Development Scorecard to encourage the principles and practices of equity and affordability in future project planning and development.
›› Continue its advocacy for affordable and adequate housing policy change through source-of-income, inclusionary zoning, and proactive rental inspection.
OUR VOTING RIGHTS INITIATIVES WILL
›› Fight to mitigate the imposition of voter ID on Nebraska voters by members of the Nebraska Legislature.
›› Advocate at the statehouse for pro-voter policies including the expansion of vote-by-mail and the restoration of voting rights for Nebraskans who have served their debt to society.
›› Counter unfounded conspiracy theories and other bad-faith efforts to undermine confidence in our democratic systems and elections.
