Living in an inclusive community

Disability Rights Nebraska works to protect and advocate for the human and legal rights of persons with significant disabilities.

Disability Rights Nebraska is grateful to the community for their support last year! Our focus was on educating the public and people with disabilities about their voting rights, and because of you:

  • 16 new voters were registered by Disability Rights Nebraska staff on National Voter Registration Day
  • 12 people receiving treatment at the Lincoln Regional Center were able to fill out and submit early ballots.
  • A Voting Accessibility Hotline was staffed on Election Day (8 am to 8 pm), with a Disability Rights Nebraska attorney available to answer voting rights questions.
  • Over 300 pieces of Voter Rights Information were distributed in Lancaster County
  • Four Lincoln Libraries hosted Voter Registration Drives staffed by Disability Rights Nebraska staff in collaboration with the Lancaster County Election Office
  • Eight Disability Rights Nebraska Staff Members are now certified to register people to vote through deputy registrar training conducted by the Lancaster County Election Office
  • State Senators were provided with clear information about the potential effects of legislative voting bills that could impact people with disabilities

We are excited to have another opportunity to focus our activities in Lincoln and Lancaster County. This year our focus is outreach to Hispanic individuals with disabilities.

We want to educate Spanish-speaking Lincoln and Lancaster County residents with disabilities about their rights. Our bilingual intake specialist will work with the community to provide information, advice, referrals and educational presentations.

We serve people all across Nebraska, but ALL of your donations to Give to Lincoln will be used to promote and defend the Dignity, Equality and Empowerment of individuals living in Lincoln or Lancaster County.

Join us! You can make a difference. Your support will build greater inclusion in Lincoln and Lancaster County. Thank you.

Disability Rights Nebraska agradece a la comunidad por todo el apoyo brindado el año pasado. Nuestra atención se centró en la educación del público y las personas con discapacidad sobre sus derechos de voto, y debido a que:

  • 16 nuevos votantes fueron registrados por el personal de Disability Rights Nebraska en el Día Nacional de Registro de Votantes
  • 12 personas que reciben tratamiento en el Centro Regional de Lincoln fueron capaces de llenar y enviar boletas tempranas.
  • La línea de Acceso de Votación Directa fue atendida el día de las elecciones a partir de las (08 a.m.-8 p.m.), por un abogado de Disability Rights Nebraska para responder preguntas relacionado a los derechos de voto.
  • Más de 300 folletos con Información para los Derechos del Votante se distribuyeron en el Condado de Lancaster.
  • En Cuatro Bibliotecas de Lincoln se organizaron campañas de registro de votantes atendidos por personal de Disability Rights Nebraska en colaboración con la Oficina de Elecciones del Condado de Lancaster.
  • Ocho miembros del personal de Disability Rights Nebraska están certificadas para registrar a las personas a votar por medio de un entrenamiento conducido por un delegado registrador llevado a cabo por medio de la Oficina de Elecciones del Condado de Lancaster.
  • A los Senadores Estatales se les proporcionó información clara sobre los efectos potenciales de los proyectos de ley legislativos al voto que podrían afectar a las personas con discapacidad.

Estamos muy contentos de tener otra oportunidad de enfocar nuestras actividades en Lincoln y el Condado de Lancaster. Este año nuestro objetivo es la divulgación de información a todas aquellas personas hispanas con discapacidad. Queremos educar a los residentes con discapacidad de habla Hispana de Lincoln y el Condado de Lancaster sobre sus derechos. Nuestra especialista bilingüe trabajará con la comunidad para proporcionar información, asesoramiento, referencias y presentaciones educativas.

Brindamos servicios a personas en todo el estado de Nebraska, pero TODAS sus donaciones recolectadas en el día de dar a Lincoln serán utilizados para promover y defender la dignidad, la igualdad y el fortalecimiento de las personas que viven en Lincoln o el condado de Lancaster.

Únete a nosotros! Usted puede hacer una diferencia. Su apoyo va a construir una mayor inclusión en Lincoln y al Condado de Lancaster. Gracias.
