Poster sales to benefit Youth Emergency Services

It’s vital that every child have the greatest opportunity possible for stability, growth and development all across our state. That's why I support organizations like Youth Emergency Services which works to help children who face homelessness by meeting their immediate needs for food, shelter, clothing and safety, and then creating a support system which helps them flourish. In the Nebraska Legislature, I look forward to doing more in this state to address poverty and make sure our most vulnerable kids are loved, supported, educated, and successful. All the proceeds from the sales of these hand-screened Rad Women of Omaha posters, created by the students of Blackburn Alternative School, goes to Youth Emergency Services. YES serves homeless and at-risk youth by providing critically-needed resources which empower them to become self-sufficient. I am honored to be featured in this student-driven project highlighting the work and impact of women in our city. Come pick up a poster at Hello Holiday, 5008 Underwood Avenue, and they will donate 100% of the proceeds from your poster purchase to support the important work of Youth Emergency Services. ​

I am grateful to be influenced and touched by mothers every day, directly through their compassion and strength and indirectly through the amazing children they nurture in the world. I am also thinking today of the mothers we have lost, and the mothers who themselves have gone through loss.

Megan Hunt Endorsed by Moms Demand Action

I am very proud to have received the endorsement of Moms Demand Action. Solutions to address gun violence in our communities have not moved because for too long, the gun lobby has made it uncomfortable for lawmakers to talk about gun safety or oppose their dangerous agenda. They want us to believe that gun violence is normal and that there's nothing we can do to change that. And they've made talking about guns a culturally divisive topic, despite the fact that most gun owners support gun violence prevention policies. But we know the truth: The legislators we've elected have not only the power, but the urgent obligation to set aside the rhetoric pandering to the extreme wings of their parties and take the first step toward a more moderate national gun policy. In the Nebraska Legislature, I will be a leader in addressing this topic and keeping our kids safe. ​
