What does "freedom" mean to you?

Raised Hands

What does freedom mean to you?

That is the question we are asking our friends and supporters. The work of Disability Rights Nebraska is focused on the legal and human rights of individuals with disabilities.

Freedom is key to our human and legal rights.

Freedom is significant for everyone.

We think of freedom as experiencing the DIGNITY and EQUALITY afforded to a member of a true community, and the EMPOWERMENT that comes from being included.

As we approach the birthday of our nation, we would like to know what "freedom" means to you.  Raise your hand and CLICK on the picture to share your thoughts with us.
