‘All of us belong’: Nebraska ACLU launches new immigrant rights campaign

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A new campaign is aimed at making immigrants from across the world feel welcomed in Nebraska.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska launched the rights awareness campaign on Thursday.

This campaign’s message is: “All of us have rights, and all of us belong.”

Billboards placed in Fremont, Grand Island, Lexington and South Omaha through December will share that message in several languages.

Multilingual information pamphlets have also been handed out at community cultural events, the ACLU said in a press release.

These ads point people to the ACLU of Nebraska’s website, which they say provides information on their rights regarding housing, the workplace and interactions with authorities.

The group’s senior legal and policy counsel, Rose Godinez, said the campaign’s goal is to make sure that Nebraska immigrants feel informed and welcomed.

“It is important that immigrant Nebraskans understand they are essential to the fabric of our communities and that their rights must be respected and defended,” Godinez said. “Our message is clear: all of us have rights and all of us belong, regardless of immigration status.”
