We are still beaming with joy and even more committed to advocating for gender equity after yesterday’s Lead the Change event. You all showed up and helped us to create a powerful statement recognizing the impact we can have when we come together.
A few highlights:
- Actor, author and founder Geena Davis shared with a crowd of 1,000 attendees the difference data can make and “if they can see it, they can be it.” Read more about the event via Omaha World-Herald.
- Nebraska Youth Poet Laureate Aliyah American Horse beautifully performed an original piece, “Thorns and Thunderstorms.”
- Our Executive Director Jo Giles shared an update on our work and reflected on the value of community.
- Advocacy organizations shared valuable information about the Paid Sick Leave for Nebraskans ballot initiative and the League of Women Voters registered people to vote!
This moment calls for collective action, solidarity and bold advocacy. Let’s take the energy from the room and work to create a community worthy of honoring, fighting for and deeply loving. Together, we can achieve gender equity. But to get there, we need your financial support to continue this important work.
