“Lincoln has to compete with other communities for talented workers and many of those cities have protections in place based on sexual orientation.”
– Beatty Brasch, Executive Director of Center for People In Need
I was born and raised in Nebraska and am proud of my ancestors from Denmark who farmed in Nebraska and others who came from England. My grandfather was a NE Dist. Court judge and two of my uncles were lawyers in Lincoln. They are all gone now but I know they would be so dismayed if they found out Lincoln supported discrimination against my son who is gay. My son now lives in another state where he feels more welcome and I'm sure other Nebraskan families suffer similar fates when part of their family feels they must move.
Nebraska has a lot of offer but we also need to offer freedom from discrimination for all.
