Engage in the 2018 Legislative Session

CSN staff is busy planning more trainings to help you and your organization prepare to advocate on important public policies that support all Nebraskans. In addition to community and nonprofit trainings, we help you follow legislation that impacts people in poverty each week.

Mondays at Noon – Weekly Legislative Calls 
Join CSN members and members of the Nebraska Civic Engagement Table to hear updates on important legislation, ask questions and plan grassroots strategy to support/oppose/amend bills that impact people in poverty.

Nonprofits Can Lobby. Everyone Needs to Learn the Rules.

The trainings were developed for three audiences: lawyers, accountants and bookkeepers, 501(c)(3) public charities and foundations and were hosted by CSN and co-sponsored by the Nebraska Civic Engagement Table, Nonprofit Association of the Midlands and Nebraskans for Civic Reform.
