Who we are

Our mission

 We operate under the assumption that living out of God’s grace means, at least in part, fighting for justice for those oppressed or in need whose voices go unheard. We believe that ordinary citizens can take action on behalf of the disadvantaged by advocating for just laws. The purpose of the day, then, is help voters of the State of Nebraska better understand upcoming legislation in the Unicameral and the effects of that legislation in order that they may advocate for justice through the passage of laws that protect the rights and address the needs of the less fortunate.
