Seeking to challenge Omaha residency restriction ordinance


Nebraskans Unafraid needs your help as we seek to challenge Omaha’s sex offender residency restriction ordinance.
If we do not challenge Omaha residency restrictions, a disabled Vietnam veteran will be removed from his rent-supported home. He is far from alone. Many other registrants are told where they may and may not live because of residency restrictions in Omaha and other cities.
Attorney Janice Bellucci, nationally known for her tenacious fight against residency restriction laws, has defeated over twenty-four municipal residency restriction ordinances in California. She is willing to help challenge these laws here in Nebraska for a reasonable fee of $5,000 plus $100 per hour for all additional time needed after the preliminary filing.
We need your help to fund this legal challenge in the next week. We already have $1,000 pledged and need everyone’s help in raising the rest.  Whether it is $1,000, $500, $100 or even $20, any gift is important and greatly appreciated.
Please send your gift to Nebraskans Unafraid in the next week so we can support Janice’s legal challenge. We must overturn onerous laws which do not improve public safety.
Bring your gift to our Fearless meeting on Monday, July 24, or send your donation to Nebraskans Unafraid, P.O. Box 6705, Omaha, NE 68106. We also accept donations through our website at http://www.nebraskarsol.com/.
Your donation to Nebraskans Unafraid will help you or someone you know have a better chance at housing and chip away at the punitive laws that don’t enhance public safety.
Sincerely,
Kenneth Ackerman
