Because the state of Nebraska is willing to expose you and your loved ones to hatred, threats and violence . . .
Politicians are afraid of the politics around this issue and their cowardice prevents them from acting. Thus, politicians participate in ongoing violence against people on registries.
Those who are on the registry and their family members are at risk until editorial writers, elected officials, faith leaders and others who believe in justice are willing to stand up for them. They are at risk until those same voices condemn the Nebraska state government scheme, the registry, that enables harassment of and discrimination against nearly 6,000 people in our communities.
