Congratulations to the Boys State Basketball Champions:

  • Creighton Prep
  • Elkhorn South
  • Winnebago
  • Hastings St. Cecilia
  • High Plains

Great games for every team competing in the State Tournament!

We also thank all of you “champions” who came to support Disability Rights Nebraska at our Noodles and Company fundraisers in Lincoln and Omaha.  There was a great turnout and many willing supporters. 

Our major federal grants help pay salaries and rent.  But with your support of these fundraisers you help us to engage in public policy advocacy and stretch our resources to protect and advocate for the rights of people with disabilities in Nebraska. 

Thank you for your continued support.


THANKS, SCOTTSBLUFF AND THE LAKOTA LUTHERAN CENTER!

Great Turn Out for the Wosjape Tasting Event

Did you hear!  The Wosjape Tasting event in Scottsbluff was a wonderful success. 

What's a Wosjape?  It's a traditional Lakota berry or fruit sauce served with fry bread. 

The Lakota Lutheran Center at 1200 East Overland (across the street from Rosita's) sponsored the event for the benefit of Disability Rights Nebraska.  We had nearly 100 people in attendance and they were very generous in their donations to Disability Rights Nebraska.  All of the funds donated will be used to support our work in Western Nebraska.  

Thanks Lakota Lutheran Center - you were terrific hosts!!

Social Role Valorization Workshop

Tuesday, May 19 - 21, 2015 at Nebraska Wesleyan University, in Lincoln

WHAT IS SOCIAL ROLE VALORIZATION? The theory of Social Role Valorization (SRV) grew out of what many people know as “normalization.” This introductory workshop to SRV will present (a) the common life experiences of people who are marginalized and devalued in our society, and (b) SRV as a way to address some of these experiences in order to support people to become valued members of the community.

  • People With Disabilities, On Screen And Sans Clichés

    Isaac Zablocki co-founded a film festival to showcase films made by and about people with disabilities. The festival, called ReelAbilities, is now in its seventh year. "We tend not to like the films that show disability in a more clichéd sense," he says. "We like a more nuanced sense — or possibly even films that are not about the disability, but rather just happen to have disability in them."

  • United Nations International Day of Happiness

    The United Nations focuses strongly on “the pursuit of happiness” as “a fundamental human goal.”
