The Holland Children’s Movement will organize and motivate Nebraskans to take action on critical public policies impacting working families and their children. Our focus will be to make the state of Nebraska a national leader in opportunities for all children. We will support efforts to tackle the root causes of family poverty and assure that every child in Nebraska will have the support they need to reach their full potential as a successful and contributing person in society.
