Progressive Resources for Nebraska

When I was a kid, I regarded Nebraska as just another one of those squarish states in the middle of the country. I thought these states were interchangeable. When I grew older, I quickly learned better.

After school, I went to live in Iowa for a while, and made frequent trips out to Nebraska, taking the long drive through the middle of the state to visit small places and Nebraska's two great cities, Lincoln and Omaha. A lot of people don't realize the strength of a Midwestern city, the way it stands out as a proud tall beacon of big ideas out in the great fields.

Lincoln and Omaha have a lot of progressive political action going on, but so do the smaller towns of Nebraska, in their smaller ways. For one thing, Nebraska is a hotbed of conservation activity, due to its vital placement in the path of major bird migrations. From conservation, Nebraskans move into community activism, and to the basic ideals that underlie progressive ideals: Freedom, fairness and peace.

We created this special directory of progressive organizations in Nebraska because we have great respect for the way that Nebraskans transform their principles into practical action. We've Nebraska searched for active progressive groups and information, compiling a core listing of liberal Nebraska resources into the directory you see below. However, we know that there's even more going on in Nebraska, and we'd like to expand our list. So, if you know of any progressive organizations, information resources, or candidates in Nebraska that we don't already have listed here, drop us a line and we will consider adding links to them as a part of this growing directory.

This collection of Nebraska progressive resources is brought to you by Irregular Times, the online journal for news unfit to print.
