Nebraskans for Peace is a statewide grassroots advocacy organization working nonviolently
for Peace with Justice through community building, education and political action.
Four themes have defined Nebraskans for Peace virtually from its inception: the search for peace through negotiation and especially through the reduction of nuclear armaments; the pursuit of nonviolence; an opposition to globalization that gives untrammeled power to multinational corporations; and an assertion that we will not stand by while the rights of persons of color and other marginalized populations in our society are trampled.
"Nothing changes unless someone is made to feel uncomfortable.
Nothing changes unless we make ourselves uncomfortable."
-- Frank LaMere, Native American Activist
