Senator Kathy Campbell
Jim Wolf Equal Justice Award
This year, Appleseed is proud to recognize Senator Kathy Campbell with the Jim Wolf Equal Justice Award for her tireless advocacy for Nebraska’s children.
As Chairwoman of the Legislature’s Health & Human Services Committee, Senator Campbell has been a central leader in overseeing the Legislature’s efforts to reform Nebraska’s child welfare system and improve the lives of thousands of Nebraska’s most vulnerable children. Under Senator Campbell’s leadership this session, the Legislature passed a series of child welfare reforms that created much needed accountability, transparency and oversight of the state’s child welfare system. The reforms mark a turning point in addressing the child welfare system’s persistent failures and create a structure for involving stakeholders and all three branches of government in developing a comprehensive strategic plan for true reform of the system.
Senator Campbell has also been the lead advocate at the Legislature for two years calling for the restoration of prenatal care coverage for all low-income mothers and children. Because of Senator Campbell’s efforts helping pass LB 599 this April, more than 1,500 low-income children will soon have access to prenatal care and a chance at a healthy start to life.
