For 30 years, Omaha Together One Community (OTOC), has been developing and organizing leaders to work together with public officials, in confronting the inequalities in Omaha and Douglas County to strengthen our community.
We are proud of our accomplishments from the past year:
- Conducting research on mental health accessibility and identifying three areas of significant need: 1) mental health resources in schools, 2) emergency mental health services for youth and 3) a critical shortage in the workforce.
- Packing a Douglas County Town Hall Meeting to urge the Commissioners to invest nearly $3M in Mental Health Workforce.
- Learning through meetings with immigrant leaders that their primary concern remains the uncertainty around their lawful status.
- Organizing a statewide coalition of over 200 representatives of Chambers of Commerce, Ag industries, Healthcare and other businesses, organized labor, academia, non-profits, and immigrant and refugee leaders to address the barriers that keep immigrants from filling NE’s 80,000 open jobs.
- Meeting with US Department of Labor Secretary Marty Walsh to brief him on the state of Nebraska’s workforce shortages and how immigration reform is a necessary solution.
Today we remain committed to the common good and to carry on the work done over this past year. Our financial support comes from individuals like YOU, who share OTOC’s vision. A donation of any size to support OTOC’s work is deeply appreciated.
