|Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I’ve been nominated for the Tammy Baldwin Breakthrough Award which is given annually to an up-and-coming state or local LGBTQ+ elected official whose promising political career will move equality forward. Named for Senator Tammy Baldwin, the first openly gay person elected to the U.S. Senate, this award is a great asset to the platform of state and local elected officials working to move the needle for LGBTQ+ representation.
Do you realize how EXCELLENT it would be to bring this award home to a red state??? The future of our nationwide movement for equity and representation is going to center in states like Nebraska, and with young leaders who are closest to the people they represent. It would mean a lot to receive this national recognition of the work I am doing to keep young people who have more progressive values in their states, where we can build a more inclusive culture for everyone.
Voting ends Monday!
Please vote, please share far and wide, and THANK you!
