If You're Voting Here In Nebraska

Amy and I did our early ballots here in Nebraska and turned them in today. Thankfully, in doing them at home, we had more time to really research what we were voting on as far as amendments.
Because of this research, we feel obliged to inform you about Amendment 424.
We have done a lot of research on Amendment 424, which will appear on the ballot on November 4th. This initiative is intentionally worded very deceptively! It makes it sound like it's civil rights friendly, but IT IS NOT.
Basically, this is a proposed ban on affirmative action and it's being pushed by extremists from outside of Nebraska. It is meant to divide communities and deny equal opportunities. It works against equal rights. It could eliminate scholarships to our community and state colleges and the University. It threatens women-owned businesses, funding for domestic violence programs and women's health initiatives.
It could have a lot of negative impacts and risk the continuation of many other education, business development and public health programs!
I don't want to tell you how to vote, but I strongly urge all of you to do your research on this Amendment!
The Vrbi vehemently oppose Amendment 424!
