Will You Call on Tuesday?
From Omaha and Lincoln to Scottsbluff and Gering, you spoke out. You said what matters to you, and what you need to make change happen. Thank you.
And what did you say? While there were many things that you said were important to you, members and friends of Nebraska’s LGBT community made on thing very clear: We want a Nebraska where no one was denied access to health care, housing, public accommodations, social services and employment because of who they are.
Now its time to make your priorities known. On Tuesday, October 13, just after National Coming Out Day, will you call your state senator and ask them to come out in support of employment protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity?
Why employment protections? People must be able to provide for themselves first and foremost. When someone is afraid they will loose their job for speaking out, they can’t work on other issues that matter to them.
Why in Nebraska? Our state senators need to look out for all of Nebraska’s residents. We cannot let them avoid the issue by relying on federal legislation.
It will take less than 5 minutes to call your state senator on Tuesday. Instructions and a sample message will be available on this website. Sign-up to call today to ensure you receive the information on Tuesday.
AND! You don’t have to wait to talk to your friends, family or a local newspaper about how important ensuring people are judged by the merit of their work is to you. Check out the tips that are available!
