SIGN: I support refugees making Nebraska home

Nebraskans are genuinely welcoming people, and we have the means — not to mention a moral obligation — to open our door to families like Shams', who are facing devastation in the Middle East and a stark choice to flee or else die amid the chaos. Stand with us to demand that Gov. Ricketts and Nebraska's representatives in Congress support the admittance of refugees from Syria to Nebraska, so that our great state can continue its tradition of welcoming all to share in "The Good Life," like Shams did.

Tell Gov. Ricketts: Support the Clean Power Plan

We do not want our taxpayer dollars used by Gov. Ricketts and Attorney General Peterson to mount another wrong-headed legal challenge to the Clean Power Plan — a flexible, common-sense plan that will cut carbon pollution and clean up our land, air and water. We demand that the Governor and Attorney General stop fighting for Big Oil and Wyoming coal at the expense of the health of Nebraskans and our land and water.

SIGN: I support more clean wind energy in Nebraska

Nebraskans have an historic chance to create hundreds of new jobs, a new local source of clean energy, and generate $10 million in local revenue over the next two decades, with the Hallam Wind Project in southeast Nebraska. But Lancaster County is proposing new restrictions on wind turbines that would effectively kill the Hallam Wind Project — or any other wind farm developments in the county, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.

SIGN: Don’t frack our water

An out-of-state oil company with a questionable track record wants to export its toxic fracking wastewater into Nebraska, moving 80 truckloads carrying 10,000 barrels per day of pollution destinted to be dumped into a disposal well in Sioux County — transfering all the risk onto Nebraska farmers and ranchers, and threatening the Ogallala aquifer forever.

Sign the petition: No eminent domain for private gain

Support State Sen. Ernie Chambers' LB 473, a bill to repeal the eminent domain powers LB 1161 gave TransCanada to seize farmers' and ranchers' land to build the Keystone XL pipeline. Eminent domain should only be used for projects that serve "the public good," and this risky tarsands export pipeline fails the test.

Support Equality in Nebraska

Sign the ACLU's petition to Nebraska State Senators: Please work to end discrimination and support equality and fairness in Nebraska. Please support policies that value strong families, workplaces free of discrimination, equal access to health care, educational and economic opportunity for all Nebraskans. (Bold Nebraska supports the 2015 "Equality Agenda," a series of bills introduced in the state legislature that aim to add protections for the LGBT community in the workplace and other areas.)
