WAYNE – District 17 Senator Joni Albrecht would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving and to have a wonderful time celebrating abundant blessing with those you hold dear.
Earlier this week, senator Albrecht had the opportunity to attend the WallBuilders ProFamily Legislators Conference.
“I found my time there very encouraging as I had the opportunity to rub shoulders with likeminded conservative pro-family State Legislators from across the United States for an insightful briefing session with leading experts in a variety of fields that touch many of the most crucial areas of public service. What an inspiration to see so many men and women taking bold stands for what is right, creating excellent legislation that upholds truth, justice and liberty for all.”
While there, Senator Albrecht learned of First Liberty Institute, the largest legal organization in the nation dedicated exclusively to defending religious liberty for all Americans. They believe that every American of any faith—or no faith at all—has a fundamental right to follow their conscience and live according to their beliefs. They come alongside individual Americans who are in jeopardy of losing their individual rights with legal representation at no or very reduced expense.
Another highlight was hearing Louisiana Congressman Mike Johnson who spoke on the 7 Core Principles of Conservatism. The core values he shared are the same values Senator Albrecht lives by as a fiscal conservative representing her constituents on the Floor of the Legislature. You can find more about Congressman Johnson at mikejohnson.house.gov and the 7 Core Principles.
Individual Freedom; Limited Government; The Rule of Law; Peace through Strength; Fiscal Responsibility; Free Markets and Human Dignity.
Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts has designated November as “Adoption Awareness Month”. In a recent press conference they emphasized the need for additional families to provide a home and sense of belonging to the 600+ youth in Nebraska awaiting adoption.
Adoptions in Nebraska have declined during the pandemic, so parents are urged to consider providing a permanent home to a child in need.
Senator Albrecht is continuing to work on the best legislation she can bring next session to fight for the rights of parents and children that have made District 17 an extraordinary place to live for generations.
