this summer, and will work to ensure repeal is protected at the 2016
general elections. Here is the latest update from Nebraskans for
We have successfully laid the foundation for what will be a strong
General Election campaign. Because of you, we can compete with the
deep pockets of our opponents. While we are going to work tirelessly
to monitor the petition validation process to ensure that it is fair
and legal, we are going to start looking ahead to the work that needs
to be done in order to keep our broken death penalty where it
belongs, in the past.
This is where you come in. One way you can help us is by writing or
submitting a letter to the editor to your local paper. We are in need
of letters to the editor every week in every paper across this state.
We are willing to help draft the letters and assist your supporters
in whatever way necessary.
In addition to letters, we are going to begin collecting hundreds of
personal stories of why Nebraskans are opposed to the death penalty.
We would like these stories to come from all across the state. We
will create a central hub for our stories through our website where
Nebraskans can go to read about why the death penalty is broken and
the pain it causes so many who become ensnared in the system. Stay
tuned for more information about how you can share your story.
Finally, we are looking for strong volunteers to step up and serve as
“County Captains” for our general election campaign. The County
Campaign will help us in three main areas:
Serve as a central location to mail campaign materials when
necessary. Research community organizations, leaders, and groups that
might be willing to join our effort and passing our campaign message
along to them. Monitor their local papers and report any stories and
LTEs relating to our issues to the campaign. This will ensure we have
eyes and ears on the ground to respond immediately to any false
claims made by our opponents. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if
you would like more information, or want to sign up with help with
letters to the editor and/or becoming a County Captain.
