Walking to Fix our Democracy  is moving across Nebraska (see route) and will stop in Omaha on Thursday, June 6. Rick Hubbard – an 82-year-old retired attorney from Vermont – began his cross-country walk in Los Angeles. Along the way, he is engaging, activating, supporting and collaborating with organizations and individuals to highlight the purpose of the walk.

The message is simple: Preserving our democracy first is the quickest and most effective way to avoid autocracy and unlock progress on every other issue important to us all.

You are invited to join us at 3 p.m. on June 6 on the northwest corner of 72nd and Dodge streets (Target parking lot), where Hubbard will begin his mile walk to the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Weitz Community Engagement Center, where a nonpartisan forum on democracy will begin at 4 p.m. At the forum, you can hear Hubbard and other civic engagement leaders talk about furthering pro-democracy reforms. Parking is free in Lot E near the Weitz Community Engagement Center.

After Nebraska, the nationwide walk will pass through Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan in the late summer and fall and then head through Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maryland this winter. It will end in Washington, DC, the week before the presidential inauguration in January 2025.

Sponsors of Hubbard’s visit to Omaha are the League of Women Voters of Nebraska, Common Cause Nebraska, Represent Us, Better Ballots Nebraska, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Omaha and the Voting Rights Restoration Coalition.

Questions:  Call or text Joanna Lindberg, 402-216-3014, government co-director of the LWVNE.
