ENTREPRENEUR, ACTIVIST, AND ELECTED OFFICIAL,
STATE SENATOR 8TH DISTRICT, NEBRASKA LEGISLATURE
Class of 2022 BEQ Pride LGBTQ Leader Under 40
(She, Her) is 35
What do you believe is your responsibility to this moment in history?
I would like to have Jewish colleagues, Muslim colleagues, more Black colleagues, more LGBTQ+ colleagues, colleagues of different abilities, colleagues of different national origins. Mentoring, speaking up about our intersections of difference, welcoming those who want to throw their hat in the ring, and yes, fundraising, is part of what we can do to help get us there.
