Next Generation Nebraska, a bipartisan group of state legislators under age 40, convened for a press conference to announce that they are joining the Millennial Action Project’s national movement of politically diverse young elected officials forging common ground. The group, led by Senator Adam Morfeld (D-District 46) and Senator Brett Lindstrom (R-District 18), will address issues impacting young Nebraskans and also identify policies that will work to retain and attract millennials to the state. Nebraska is the 15th state to officially join MAP's network.
Next Generation Nebraska joins a nationally-recognized group of legislators working towards a more constructive governing environment. Through this partnership, over a dozen young legislators in Nebraska will join the community of policymakers, who convene to exchange ideas and best practices, while also highlighting how millennial leaders are revitalizing our democracy.
By uniting the political and social capital of the Millennial generation, MAP and Next Generation Nebraska hope to take the steps necessary to overcome America’s historic levels of crippling polarization, forging innovative bipartisan solutions and prioritizing the concerns of future generations in Nebraska and across the nation.
The press conference was held at the Nebraska State Capitol.
