A heavy oppositional presence will be attending this hearing and we need a huge presence of our members to attend to voice our support. People willing to volunteer and provide testimony is vital to get this passed as well.
If you wish to provide testimony and you need support, Moms for Liberty will be holding an informational meeting via Zoom on Sunday, January 29 at 4 PM. We are happy to provide coaching regarding testifying in front of the Unicameral. Text Tracee Baker at 402-490-8701 and we will then send you the Zoom link for the testimony prep meeting when it becomes available.
Personal stories hit home to our legislators. If you are a parent or a teacher (active or retired), please consider testifying. If you can’t attend, please consider submitting a written testimony via mail or email to your State Senator: https://www.nebraskalegislature.gov/sena.../senator_list.php

This is a time when we are called to sacrifice and take time out of our schedule to rally together for the future of Nebraska's children. Together, we can push this bill over the finish line!
