What We Do

Disability Rights Nebraska is the Protection and Advocacy system for people with disabilities in our state. We protect, support and promote the rights of people with disabilities.  This includes people with just about any disability including intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental illness and physical disabilities. With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

  • To vote in the next elections, you will need to show a photo ID. That can be a Nebraska driver’s license, Nebraska state ID card, Nebraska college or university ID card, any veteran, active military or tribal ID with a photo, a United States passport, or a document from your nursing home or assisted living facility with your name and a photo. If you don’t have an ID right now, you can get a free state ID from your local DMV.

From the Blog

A bill that would direct millions in federal ARPA funds toward tackling the state’s affordable housing shortage was considered by the Appropriations Committee Feb. 20.

We’re happy to have had a part in bringing this to light. Students with disabilities should be able to receive needed services and supports in their neighborhood schools.

Ways to help:

  • Connecting donors to causes they care most about.

  • Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by tax law.
