Milo Mumgaard


Milo Mumgaard, a (nearly) lifelong Nebraskan, has over twenty-five years experience as a public interest lawyer and entrepreneur. He has represented migrant farmworkers in Texas, family farmers in Walthill, welfare moms in Lincoln, and meatpacking workers in Lexington. He has worked with a few big names, but mostly not. He founded Nebraska Appleseed and fought poverty from his basement, and then helped develop urban worker centers for the AFL-CIO and national voter protection campaigns for Common Cause. Now he daily finds great satisfaction in helping develop new opportunities for greener, more sustainable communities. Sadly, he and his wife are now watching their twins go off to college (public, of course). He’s an honors graduate of UNL and the NYU School of Law.
