    Please help make Nebraska an inclusive and welcoming place for everyone. Ensure that I won’t lose my job based on the gender of the person I marry.

    Equality Before the Law means Equality Before the Law! No one should be discriminated against because of who they are! Everyone has Equal protection under the law under the Us Constitution, and Nebraska is violating the Us Constitution, violating the people’s rights, and violating the state’s own state motto of Equality Before the Law! Respect the Constitution’s 9th amendment in the Bill of Rights, that protects the individual’s rights, in the same way that the 10th amendment protects state’s rights… It’s shocking that people always want to argue states rights, but than completely over look the individuals’ rights to live freely to pursue happiness as they choose! It’s no one’s business who someone chooses to marry, that choice belongs to the individual; it’s not the state’s decision to decide who someone can and cannot marry, it’s not society’s decision, and it’s not your employer’s decision! And no one should be penalized for not marrying the person someone else wanted them to marry! No one should loose their job because of who they are, or who they love! #civil rights for all! #equality before the law now! #equal protection under law! #the equal protection clause of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment!

    As a young professional who has lived in other parts of the country, coming back to Omaha meant a cultural change for me, one that felt somewhat restrictive and conservative. In order to attract and retain the best talent, we need to be a state that values diversity of thought and that protects the rights of all of our citizens; the LB 586 legislation is a long-overdue step in the right direction.
