Black and Brown Legislative Day
February 27 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm
The Urban League of Nebraska Young Professionals invite you to Nebraska’s 2nd Annual Black & Brown Legislative Day on February 27th, 2018. Our goal is to help empower communities of color to bring their concerns about legislation that affects them to Nebraska Senators.
We have identified four topics that are currently of interest in the legislature that can/will affect Black and Brown communities. These topics are Voting Rights, Prison Reform, Education, and Budget. We will use these topics as focus areas for education on how bills become law, how to identify and engage legislators on important issues, and what testifying at a committee hearing entails. With these tools, we know we can make a meaningful impact in the realm of civic engagement in Black and Brown communities.
Please, if you need transportation to/from Lincoln and have dietary restrictions, don’t forget to mark it in your registration. For more information on the event, click here.
