From densely populated urban centers to vast open areas of land _ Nebraskans value their privacy.
Laws and government practices that violate your privacy rights can come from Congress, but they can also be violated _ and protected _ by state and local government.
In the legislature, the ACLU has worked to protect your privacy at the ballot box and to protect your privacy from your employer. In communities and schools around Nebraska, the ACLU has worked to protect tenants, parents and employees when government tries to cast its net too wide and without justification.
