Night of Listening to bring students, elected officials together
Huskers are invited to attend and participate in "Night of Listening" at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Nebraska Union Swanson Auditorium.
A student-led town-hall event, the mission of Night of Listening is to “create a space for students and elected officials to share with and listen to each other’s hopes and visions for safe and productive communities in Nebraska and nationwide.”
Huskers will have the chance to dialogue the challenges facing students with state senators and local government officials, as well as their fellow students, to find common ground and be involved in the community, state and nation.
Elected officials in attendance will be:
• Adam Morfeld, state senator for District 46
• Patty Pansing Brooks, state senator for District 28
• John McCollister, state senator for District 20
• James Michael Bowers, chair of the Lincoln City Council and representative for NE District 1.
Each senator and council member will speak for a short time before opening the floor to students for questions and to share their stories.
Questions can be submitted in advance here.
Night of Listening is cohosted by the ASUN Student Government's Government Liaison Committee and Student Leadership, Involvement, & Community Engagement.
