Join Nebraska Appleseed and Urban Abbey to learn about the past Legislative Session. Nebraska Appleseed’s Policy Director, Katie Pitts will talk about successes made possible by advocates and supporters, and what to expect as a result of decisions made during the session. Appleseed Community Organizer, Kait Madsen, will also share updates about the ways that supporters have been making their voices heard, and share ways to continue to take action in the coming months.
This event is part of Urban Abbey’s partnership month with Nebraska Appleseed. 10% of all coffee purchases at Urban Abbey during the month of June will go to support Appleseed’s work.
