How A Bill Becomes A Law in Nebraska
Watch this animated video to see our state's unique government system. Available in English and Spanish, it shows how an everyday Nebraskan takes an idea to a nonprofit partner – who guides the person through the legislative process. With the only Unicameral in the U.S., Nebraskans can easily have a voice in what becomes law.
Nonprofits Can Lobby
Nonprofits are often surprised to learn they can lobby. In this short video, you'll learn the difference between the two forms of nonprofit lobbying and how to choose what's best for your organization.
Every Nonprofit Has a Voice
Your nonprofit's voice, expertise and insight is a powerful asset to inform policy. All too often, however, nonprofits believe they cannot lobby or engage in policy.
The Coalition for a Strong Nebraska helps empower nonprofit organizations with the skills, tools and resources to effectively engage in policy work. We work with experts and policy makers to foster conversations to help nonprofits find their voice to engage in advocacy and lobbying.
