Our Board of Directors has determined the Legislative Priorities for Disability Rights Nebraska. You can see our priorities, read about the proposed legislation, and stay up-to-date with action on each of these bills by visiting our HIGH PRIORITY BILLS section.
For over 30 years, Disability Rights Nebraska has advocated to promote empowerment, to ensure access to the benefits of community, and to secure justice. Many people envision “justice” as retribution or punishment. For Disability Rights Nebraska, justice is about fairness.
With your help, we work together to improve and, if need be, change systems and public policy to be responsive to the needs of people with disabilities and to assure that people with disabilities are treated fairly.
Our public policy efforts work for systemic justice. Systemic justice seeks to transforms systems be they political systems, economic systems or “systems of convention” to make those systems more fair and equitable. Your help allows us to advocate for fairness in a system that often hurts those people who are most vulnerable.
In our public policy work, your donation is helping to find solutions that require policy makers to consider critical issues from a perspective of both compassion and justice.
Thank you for your support and commitment to justice.

SUPPORT THE DISABILITY RIGHTS TREATY
The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Once again the Senate will have an opportunity to ratify this important international treaty to protect the human rights of all people with disabilities. This treaty is seeking to achieve the same goals as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The Convention’s goals are to empower individuals with disabilities to achieve economic self-sufficiency, independent living, inclusion and integration into all aspects of the community. Those goals match the mission and values of Disability Rights Nebraska. That is why we support ratification of the CRPD.
The CRPD is important to all people with disabilities because it embodies equal treatment and non-discrimination in access to rehabilitation, employment and educational opportunities. The Convention reflects core American values such as the dignity of the individual, access to justice, the importance of family decision-making and access to appropriate healthcare.
