Common Cause Nebraska is holding an award ceremony and you’re invited!

It’s been seven years since our last event and much has happened in our state that deserves praise. Join us to honor Nebraskans that embody the spirit of government “By the People.”

Our 2014 “By the People” Awards go to:

  • Jane Kleeb & BOLD Nebraska, for increasing civic engagement and creating a movement that bridges party lines
  • Adam Morfeld & Nebraskans for Civic Reform, for their continued dedication to guaranteeing voting rights for all
  • Kyle McGowan & STANCE,an organization of school superintendents, who created a counter-point to public schools hiring lobbyists
  • John Bender & the UNL Faculty Senate, for speaking out about transparency when it mattered most
  • Kevin O'Hanlon, for years of diligent reporting on campaign finance reform and government ethics
  • Danielle Conrad, Jeremy Nordquist, and Nebraskans for Better Wages, legislators who organized a citizen's movement and made the best of a broken petition process

Take Action

The Supreme Court gutted a key provision of the Voting Rights Act.

Tell Congress to fix the court’s bad decision!

Take action.
