Common Cause Nebraska is holding an award ceremony and you’re invited!

It’s been seven years since our last event and much has happened in our state that deserves praise. Join us to honor Nebraskans that embody the spirit of government “By the People.”



Our 2014 “By the People” Awards go to:

Jane Kleeb & BOLD Nebraska,

for increasing civic engagement and creating a movement that bridges party lines

Adam Morfeld & Nebraskans for Civic Reform,

for their continued dedication to guaranteeing voting rights for all


an organization of school superintendents, who created a counter-point to public schools hiring lobbyists

John Bender & the UNL Faculty Senate,

for speaking out about transparency when it mattered most

Kevin O'Hanlon,

for years of diligent reporting on campaign finance reform and government ethics

Danielle Conrad, Jeremy Nordquist, and Nebraskans for Better Wages,

legislators who organized a citizen's movement and made the best of a broken petition process

We're sorry, the deadline for buying tickets for this event has passed.

Since 1972

Common Cause staff and volunteers have won hard-fought victories for reform at the state and local levels.
