Off to a Great Start in the Cornhusker State
August 19, 2011
The Human Rights Campaign – the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization – is in Nebraska, August 19-21 as part of “On the Road to Equality,” a nationwide bus tour to spread the message of equality by educating the American public and empowering LGBT people to become advocates for themselves and their families. The 12 week tour will travel to 17 cities in 11 states and D.C., with particular emphasis on the Midwest and South where there are limited legal protections for LGBT people and living openly and honestly can be difficult. The bus will travel to Nebraska for events in both Omaha and Lincoln, in partnership with Citizens for Equal Protection, Nebraska’s state-wide LGBT equality organization. Events will include everything from educational seminars on legal documents for families to community forums about family acceptance to participating in the University of Nebraska’s “Big Red Welcome.”
Over 150 people joined us on Thursday, August 19 for the ‘On the Cusp of Equality’ presentation.
