Art Camp Brings Home to Ukrainians
Amidst a full-scale invasion, community is everything. That's why Lincoln Literacy and the Lincoln Arts Council organized this free camp, to bring a sense of "home" back to Ukrainians in Lincoln.
Every day, 16 families gathered together in celebration of Ukrainian culture, tradition, and art. Tears were shed as the scene captured the enduring spirit of Ukraine.

The Inspire Awards aim to celebrate women who excel as leaders and role models, which is why we are so proud that our very own Sandra Rojo was a finalist for this year's nonprofit category! During the event, held on Sep. 20, 2023, Sandra shared her story. By working with Lincoln Literacy, Sandra has been able to achieve her dream.
