A proud native Nebraskan, Kameron Neeman exemplifies and lives by a powerful quote from civil rights pioneer, Ida B. Wells: “The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.” A long-time community organizer and activist himself, Kameron knows that the greatest potential for social change lies within local communities. It is for this reason that he is running to represent District 27 within the Nebraska Unicameral Legislature.
Born in York, Kameron spent his childhood predominantly in Crete. His family later moved to Lincoln, and Kameron graduated from Lincoln High School in 2011. To this day, Kameron is a proud supporter of LHS and all things LINKS.
Kameron has, during the past nearly 15 years, worked within a variety of human services positions and across several nonprofit systems of care. His experience includes the following: conducting street outreach for persons experiencing homelessness; supporting at-risk youth within local public schools; working for the juvenile justice and child welfare systems; serving as a case manager within youth development, addiction recovery, and criminal justice; and advocating for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking. This broad experience made Kameron deeply familiar with the political process and the importance of policy.
As one who disavows career politics and as one who supports term limits, Kameron is running to ensure that every constituent’s voice is heard. As he notes, “I’m running because I have the relevant experience and because I’ve realized that policy is foundational to every aspect of my life and to the lives of all Nebraskans.”
From where he attends church to where he has worked, Kameron can be found daily within his district enjoying conversations and supporting his local community. As Kameron says, “I love my district. This is my home.” An avid volunteer, Kam currently serves on the boards of Nebraska Abortion Resources and OutNebraska, respectively. He has also served on the boards of Nebraskans for Peace and the Nebraska Religious Council for Reproductive Freedom. An animal lover, Kameron has owned five rescue pit bulls and frequently supports animal welfare efforts.
Kameron has the experience, the passion, and the dedication to represent District 27. Forever inspired by Nebraska’s official state motto, “Equality Before the Law”, Kameron looks forward to serving and to earning your vote.
