Engage in the 2021 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.
Tuesdays at Noon – Weekly Legislative Calls
Join CSN members and members of the Nebraska Civic Engagement Table and the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands (NAM) 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.
