Your voice matters, and there is no more powerful force than when allies for gender justice join together and advocate for all. Reach out to your state senator and encourage them to support issues that are important to you! If you have lived experience or expertise but aren’t sure how to engage in the policymaking process, contact us—we are here to support you in your advocacy!

HOW TO ADVOCATE

You can make a difference—if you have five minutes or five hours. Make that time count by sharing your perspective, expertise and experience on issues that are important to you. Use your voice today to hold elected officials accountable.

The Nebraska Legislature has provided a new way for folks to weigh in on issues—an online form. Find the bill you care about, click “submit comments online” and share your lived experience or copy resources from our site!

Call Your
State Senator

When you call a senator’s office, you might speak with a staff member initially. It is important to share your perspective with the staff member, as they are responsible for briefing the state senator on legislative issues.

Email Your
State Senator

Email can be as simple or as detailed as you’d like. If your message includes a substantial amount of research or facts, you might consider putting your full message into a formal letter that you can attach to the email.

HOW LAWS ARE MADE

Hundreds of bills are introduced during the first 10 days of each legislative session with only some making it into law. While the process can be difficult to track at times, we’ll keep you up to date and let you know when your voice will be most impactful. Learn more about this process.

ACCESS IN NEBRASKA

Everyone deserves the right to decide if, when and how to become a parent. We cannot allow more restrictions to pass that stand in the way of pregnant people and the health care they need.
