Creating a modern and robust democracy for all Nebraskans

Nebraskans for Civic Reform (NCR) is a group of dedicated and politically diverse young Nebraskan professionals who are committed to making our civic institutions more inclusive among youth and historically disadvantaged and disengaged populations. NCR achieves this by engaging our youth in our community and building leadership skills. Our veterans programs ensure a smooth transition back into civilian life through job readiness and community engagement programs. Finally, we also work to protect voting rights both through litigation and through policy in the Nebraska Legislature.

We believe that by engaging and connecting Nebraskans and improving political participation in general, that we will enrich the civic culture of the state, revitalize an interest in community and increasingly retain a talented and motivated population.

We work to create a modern and robust democracy for all Nebraskans. Our over 30 full and part-time staff work hard every day to accomplish this mission across the state.

To accomplish this our three primary program areas are:

  1. K-12 civic engagement  and service learning programs in urban and rural schools.
  2. Civic health initiatives across the state in both rural and urban communities.
  3. Non-partisan voting rights protection and Nebraska accessible elections policy and research.
