Nebraska Democratic Spring Meeting (Agenda and Overview)

The Nebraska Democratic Party is hosting it’s spring meeting to gather party leadership, members, and grassroots leaders to discuss the issues facing our state.  We host these meetings quarterly to ensure that we are well organized and develop plans to elect Democrats to positions in our state.

The Democratic Party strongly stands against Pres. Trump’s Executive Order where he is turning his back on refugees and immigrants coming to our country to protect their families. Nebraska welcomes more refugees than other state on a per capita basis. To respond to this, the Nebraska Democratic Party has been collecting donations of supplies to welcome refugee families when they arrive.

We will distribute Welcome Baskets to groups working with refugees and immigrants at the start of our SCC meeting (1:30 PM).

Various other Caucus and Congressional District meetings take place during the morning.

WHO: The Nebraska Democratic Party

WHAT:  The Nebraska Democratic Party conducts party business, issue and constituency-based Caucuses meet to plan events and we gather to further the goals of the party—electing Democrats at all levels in our state. Distributing welcome refugee baskets to be delivered statewide.

WHEN:  March, 18th from 8:00 AM-4:00 PM. Refugee Welcome Basket presentation followed by the full State Central Committee meeting, 1:30.

WHERE: Lincoln East High School, 1000 South 70th Street, Lincoln, NE
