New Nebraska LGBTQ Organization

Equality Federation celebrated the launch of OutNebraska formed from OutLinc, Lincoln’s LGBTQ community center that will serve as a statewide organization to secure fairness & equality for LGBTQ+ Nebraskans & their families. Abbi Swatsworth OutNebraska Executive Director stated, “I’m so excited to partner with my fellow Nebraskans from - Nebraska City to ScottsBluff - to ensure our state is a shining example of fairness & equality for all our families, including those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. There’s a lot of work to do. We need to update our laws so that no one is kicked out of a restaurant, denied housing, or fired from a job simply for being who they are. We also need to restrict the dangerous & discredited practice of so-called conversion therapy, to name a few.” Adam Morfeld Nebraska State Senator added, “As a policymaker I am excited we will now have an organization working statewide every day to organize & advocate on behalf of LGBT equality & bring meaning to the words inscribed in our capitol, ‘Equality Before the Law’. This will change the game when it comes to LGBT advocacy in the state.” Rebecca Isaacs, Executive Director of Equality Federation concluded, “It’s time for the rest of the nation to hear from the tenacious leaders in Nebraska! We are proud that OutNebraska has formed as a statewide advocacy organization & look forward to them joining the Equality Federation family soon. Through this partnership we will support each other’s work to create fairness & equality for Nebraskans & all Americans.”
