Special Events

Changemakers is our annual celebration of the people who improve the lives of children in Nebraska and across the country. Each year, we'll bring in an inspirational speaker to discuss an issue related to child well-being. We'll also present our Grace Abbott Award and provide an update on the work that's happening across the state. 


Changemakers 2017 | October 10, 11:30 am - 1 pm

Leigh Anne Tuohy, The Blind Side Mom

Join Nebraska Children at the Embassy Suites in La Vista. This year’s keynote will be presented by Wes Moore, Army combat veteran, social entrepreneur, and author. His first book, "The Other Wes Moore," became a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller and is a story that conveys the importance of individual decisions alongside community support.

The Changemakers luncheon will also feature recognition of a few Nebraskans who have made a tremendous impact as advocates for children.
