"The more political work I did as an entrepreneur, the more comfortable I felt taking my place at the table in politics. I listen to the legislature every day. I can watch it online, I’ve done it for years. And I can see people on the floor saying, 'Well, it’s property taxes, it’s income taxes, and that’s why people don’t want to move here.' And at the same time, they’re voting for fewer protections for LGBT people, voting for fewer services for DACA recipients, they aren’t passing things like equal pay for women, paid family leave, Medicaid expansion — things that much more affect women, that affect people of color."

An evening with Nebraska Appleseed

"I've learned that it's a win just to have the conversation. It's a win to support people who don't feel supported. It's a win to change the way people were thinking before." Becky shared an important lesson in how we define wins and how we define success, and how important it is to pick yourself up when something happens that you don't define as success. As Becky said, "We're in the struggle, and there are a lot of people who came before us, and there are a lot of people who will pick up the torch and carry it on after we are gone and continue to work for social justice."
