On Wednesday, April 22nd, the Young Nebraskans in Action invited Douglas County Commissioner Jim Cavanaugh to attend the meeting in order to get an insight as to why he and Commissioner Mike Boyle took the initiative to pass a resolution forward on LB 623. Commissioner Cavanaugh did an amazing job speaking to the youth and community members on the importance of creating power through organization. Your words truly motivated us to continue to move forward in creating change for a better community.

In addition, we were able to discuss LB 599 and take action by signing the petition to tell Nebraska Legislatures to raise the minimum wage, not lower the minimum wage for hard working, young Nebraskans.

We had a great turnout of 60+ youth and community members.Thank you all for coming!
