Last legislative session, we analyzed hundreds of new bills and sorted civil rights priorities into our top categories. As bills are introduced during this year's legislative session, we will share which bills we have identified as top priorities or top threats. As state senators face key issues, we need them to make the right choices and your advocacy can help. 

Nebraska already has statewide nondiscrimination laws that protect people from unfair discrimination based on their race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, sex, marital status, national origin, familial status, handicap, age, and disability. Senators must ensure LGBTQIA+ Nebraskans have access to the same opportunities as everyone else by adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the list.

Related legislation from 2021 that can still be debated and passed in 2022: LB97, LB120, LB229, LB230, LB231, LB517LR20CA
