Profiles of civic health: Your fellow Nebraskans speak

Have you seen our Civic Health Index Series in 2021? Throughout this year – which we’ve declared the Year of Civic Health in Nebraska – we’ve been highlighting Nebraskans who fortify their communities’ civic life. It’s all part of our goal to use the findings of the 2020 Nebraska Civic Health Index to strengthen key indicators of strong civic life in Nebraska over the next five years. 
It goes without saying that these virtual sessions have been amazing and inspiring. The talent that has come together to share collective wisdom on matters of social connectedness, advocacy and engagement, activism, and building faith in community is formidable. It’s easy to see why these folks are bright lights in their Nebraska communities, and how they succeed in keeping them vibrant.
If you’ve missed any of the sessions, don’t worry. We’ve got them right here. Take a look and enjoy.
