LINCOLN – More than 100 people came to a Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday on three legislative bills on adoptions and foster care by same-sex couples, and employee protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation.
This week’s United Nations session of the Commission on the Status of Women will include a Salvation Army of Omaha representative.
A two-man show coming to Omaha this week discusses issues of race, diversity, and stereotypes through comedy and education.
More than $3 million was raised during the Omaha Salvation Army’s 2011 Tree of Lights Campaign.
Joanne Bemis is the Divisional Director of Development. She says last year, the Salvation Army assisted more than 170,000 people and she anticipates the need increasing this year.
The Salvation Army has more than 20 social service programs, serving families from teens to senior citizens. Bemis says 100% of the money raised during the campaign goes to support these programs.
