Dear Nebraska Democratic Delegates,
My name is Brian Whitecalf, and I am the current LGBT Caucus Chair. Since I joined the Nebraska Democratic Party in 2012, I have been able to create community alliances all across the state for the LGBT communities. I have traveled from Omaha to Scottsbluff and from Red Cloud to Burwell, hitting all the small towns in between, advocating for LGBT rights. I seek to continue as the LGBT caucus chair and ask for your vote to be reelected. I believe that Nebraska has come very far for equal rights, but the work is not yet done and can so easily be taken away by our elected officials. I believe in bold action, passionate advocacy, and being proactive in achieving every possible win regardless of how small. I have personally changed city policies, public along with private school policies, created local LGBT leadership, and have changed the perception in dozens of Nebraska communities that has allowed individuals to be themselves.
As we move forward, I envision a larger alliance with individuals that we have never asked before to support the LGBT community. We must find people to run for public office. We must support LGBT friendly businesses and those owned by LGBT individuals. We must increase LGBT safe zones. And we must continue to educate the people of Nebraska that we are here, we are your neighbors, and we will continue to be here.
Finally I want to thank everyone for your support. I could not have done this on my own. Please vote for me so I can continue.
Brian Whitecalf – LGBT Caucus Chair
