Date: Friday & Saturday, September 17-18, 2010

Location: University of Nebraska-Lincoln

On September 18 and 19, the UNL Progressive Student Coalition will host the 2010 Nebraska Student Organizing Conference at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln student union.  This year's third annual conference will bring together students and youth from across the state for an intensive two-day leadership and community organizing training facilitated by Campus Camp Wellstone and Wellstone Action.  The training curriculum will cover:  grassroots organizing, strategic planning, power mapping, grassroots lobbying, media and messaging, leadership development, membership recruitment, and coalition building.  The Nebraska Student Organizing Conference has trained more than 200 people since 2007 and brings together young leaders from colleges and high schools across Nebraska not only to meet and learn from each other, but also to network with and learn about volunteer and internship opportunities with community organizations, campaigns, and non-profits doing great work.

The conference is free to attend, however space is limited and people are encouraged to RSVP early to guarantee entry.  Register online here for the 2010 Nebraska Student Organizing Conference! For more information about the conference email psc.unl@gmail.com.

The Nebraska Student Organizing Conference is spearheaded by the UNL Progressive Student Coalition.  This year's organizational planning committee is comprised of the Queer Ally Coalition, the Mexican American Student Association, Students Advocating Gender Equity, Nebraskans for Peace-UNL, and the UNL LGBTQA Resource Center.

The conference could not happen without the underwriting support it receives from individuals and community organizations.  This year's conference is sponsored by the ACLU of Nebraska, Bold Nebraska, Indigo Bridge Books, Nebraskans for Peace, Sierra Club Nebraska, and many more to be announced!
