The Nebraska Civic Engagement Table is a statewide 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. Our goal is to build an electorate representative of all Nebraskans - where everyone is able to participate in the democratic process and members of the rising electorate have their voices heard in the policy making decisions that affect their lives, their families, and their communities. We will accomplish this by creating a culture of year-round civic engagement and strengthening the nonprofit community through collaboration, training, and leadership development.
The Table is a proven model implemented in other states to maximize the full advocacy potential of the nonprofit community by building stronger relationships between grassroots and community organizations, policy groups, and nonpartisan voter outreach campaigns. The Table helps grassroots organizations with deep community connections access the civic engagement tools and resources they need to engage with voters; build greater connections between nonprofits developing socially responsible public policy and nonprofits who can mobilize constituencies to take action; and Get-Out-the-Vote (GOTV) campaigns that build local, long-term community capacity and engage voters post-election on key issues affecting their lives.
