The Power of making

OUR VOICE HEARD

Civic Participation Program

Using leadership development and community organizing as our foundation, our goal is to ensure the grassroots leaders are engaged in public life.  It is our priority to ensure all eligible voters vote, ensuring their voices are heard, while positioning these leaders to work on public policies with elected officials.

We believe everyone should be involved in public life.  We cannot depend on others to do things for us, but instead must ACT in order to improve their quality of life for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

To do this, we teach leaders that one simple way to be involved is by voting.  Civic engagement also includes engaging with our elected officials, even once they’re in office, speaking with them about issues we care about.

Yet, many people do not know how the election process works, how to contact their elected officials, or even how to relate their own issues to the different positions up for election.  Therefore, this model follows the Iron Rule of not doing for others what they can do for themselves, but if they don’t know how we must teach them.

"I've been canvassing for 4 years and I won't stop until we get everyone involved. North Omaha needs inner peace and voters to exercise their rights"
