Happy New Year!
With the new year comes so many opportunities to start anew. And whatever new resolutions that we may make, we hope that Nebraska can resolve to join countless other states to end discriminatory practices for the LGBT community. Certainly the start of this new legislative session has offered great hope with what is affectionately dubbed as the “Equality Agenda,” that would offer fairness and equality for all Nebraskans. We are thankful for the moral fortitude and courage of our advocates in the legislature, on the city council and in the community. Let us each hold our elected officials accountable as we continue to ensure the state’s motto of “Equality before the law!” I challenge each to never grow complacent or become apathetic to any issue that affects the human rights of all!
