Nebraska ‘Social Refugee’ Research Makes News in Arkansas

The ground-breaking University of Nebraska-Omaha research demonstrating the widespread harm caused by the Nebraska State Patrol sex offender website is making news in Arkansas.

Station KARK in Little Rock interviewed one of the researchers, Tusty ten Bensel of the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, as well as other experts on the issue. Click here to see the story.

In Nebraska, news about the research is being covered exclusively by Nebraskans Unafraid. Preliminary findings show that Nebraska’s LB 285 of 2009 causes unemployment and homelessness, hurts people who never violated a law, and has created a class of “social refugees” who have become adept at surviving state-sanctioned hatred.

The ongoing research is the largest qualitative study of its kind.
