What We Do

Public Policy

Disability Rights Nebraska analyzes state and federal legislation as well as government policies and regulations impacting the legal and human rights of people with disabilities. Our Public Policy Team serves as a resource to others who are advocating for the rights of persons with disabilities. We also work in collaboration with other advocacy groups such as the Nebraska Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities to implement new programs or make changes in existing policies. The Public Policy Team provides informational presentations and trainings that stress the importance of political, legislative, and social involvement as necessary to advance rights, social value, and appropriate public policies for people with disabilities.
