Nebraskans are circulating a petition right now to amend their state constitution to elevate food and water care to a basic, constitutionally protected right. The Nebraskans for Humane Care Committee is sponsoring this effort, which has been unanimously endorsed by the board of Nebraskans United for Life.
Nebraska has a very high signature requirement to place an initiative like this on the ballot--10% of all registered voters in the state must sign the petition! However, petition circulators themselves can live in any state.
Helping with the petition drive is a great way to support this important cause. Please spread the word now, since the deadline for filing the petition is coming right up on July 7.
