The ACLU is our nation's guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and civil rights that the United States Constitution and laws of Nebraska guarantee everyone in the Cornhusker state.
HOW WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:
- $25 allows us to testify on one of the nearly 100 bills that impact civil liberties each year.
- $50 allows us to do a “Know Your Rights” presentation to a classroom or community group.
- $500 covers the cost of a basic legal proceeding in one of the dozens of cases we take on each year.
A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
“We have said publicly before God, our family and our friends that we love each other and are committed to one another and our children. At this moment, I want to spend time loving my children and my wife while knowing that should I die, they will be cared for. By not recognizing my family, Nebraska is making a difficult situation much more difficult emotionally and financially.” – Sally Waters, ACLU of Nebraska Client
Sally and her wife Susan are facing stage four breast cancer knowing that when Sally passes away, Susan will have to pay an 18% inheritance tax on their home while holding a death certificate saying her wife of nearly two decades is single. Along with six other same-sex couples, they have sued the state of Nebraska to have their relationships recognized. They represent thousands of same-sex couples who could benefit from the ACLU’s work as well as many more Nebraskans who choose to leave our state rather than live where their family won’t be recognized.
Join the over 2,000 members and supporters of the ACLU’s work in Nebraska and help us protect fundamental freedoms and Nebraska’s motto of “equality before the law.”
