Every year since 2006, the Empowerment Network has presented the State of North Omaha and State of African-Americans Summit.  The annual event typically attracts 300+ residents and leaders to receive celebrate progress made during the year and preview the preliminary State of North Omaha and State of African-Americans Report.  The qualitative and quantitative report features highlights, community priorities, collective strategies, data, trends and promising initiatives.

The report is used to assist partners and participants with making informed decisions based on real data and trends.  The summit now includes reports from the Mayor, City Council, Douglas County Commissioners, State Senators and other leaders of strategic initiatives.

The State of North Omaha and State of African-Americans is held the 2nd Saturday in December.
