She has served as a member of the Appropriations, Redistricting, Performance Audit, Education, Government Military Veterans Affairs, and Retirement Committees. She has been a strong and consistent champion for human rights, civil rights, and LGBTQIA+ rights during her career, introducing key measures to advance and protect equality, support our great public schools, expand voting rights, ensure nonpartisanship, foster open government, and advance economic justice. Senator Conrad led historic litigation victories for LGBTQIA+ Nebraskans including striking down the state’s discriminatory defense of marriage act and ending discrimination against LGBTQIA+ foster parents.

Senator Conrad earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Nebraska College of Law. Her career has included working as a public interest attorney, nonprofit executive, political consultant, and ballot initiative expert including eight years as the Director of the ACLU of Nebraska.

Samuel Phillips (He/Him) is a fifth-year Senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He is the Team Captain of the Men's Gymnastics Team and President of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee.

Being the only out male athlete at the University of Nebraska has driven him to use his platform to be an advocate for inclusion and education amongst collegiate athletes. It pushed him to be a co-founding member of Athlete Ally, which is the first LGBTQ+ affinity group for student athletes at the University of Nebraska. Some athletic accolades include: 4x Regular Season All-American, BigTen First Team Member, and Nissen-Emery Award Finalist.
