The social hour begins at 6pm with heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music by Manouche Moustache, and a social justice poster exhibit “Stand Up for Justice.” The program and awards presentation runs from 7pm to 7:45pm, immediately followed by a post-program social.
We have a lot to celebrate this year – restoring prenatal care, passing systemic reforms to Nebraska’s child welfare system, defeating misguided voter suppression legislation, creating new opportunities for low-income parents to pursue higher education, ensuring low-income kids can access food during the summer, and promoting communities that welcome immigrant Nebraskans as neighbors.
