Past Action+Events

Earth Day Omaha 2019

We had a booth at Earth Day Omaha 2019! This was one of our first events as an organization, and so much fun to participate in. It was great talking to the community, making connections, and wandering around the other booths! Omaha truly is a city with so many eco-friendly businesses and organizations.

 

Rally for the Planet 2019

This was the first large event that we organized as a collective group- and we were only two months old! It took a lot of learning, organizing, and working together, but we managed to pull it off. On a particularly cold April day, fifty youths and adults gathered together to make it clear to our citys lawmakers that we were here and just beginning our fight for climate action in our city. 

 

City Council Testimony- May 2019

In May 2019, we nominated members of SFS to testify in front of the Omaha City Council in support of the Ban the Bag Ordinance proposed by Councilman Pete Festerson. This ordinance would have banned the sale of plastic bags in Omaha, and was passed by the city council but then vetoed by Mayor Jean Stothert. For more information, consult the article below :)

Omaha Climate Strike- September 20, 2019

September 2019 was a huge organizing month for us! By working hard and as a team, we managed to succesffully organize Omahas first youth led climate strike, with over 300 in attendance. Speakers included SFS President Cate Kelly, Sustain UNL President Brittni Mcguire, Adam Mett from the band AJR, and other prominent community leaders. 

We were in the Omaha World Herald!
