LGBT protections remain in Omaha

Last March, the City Council of Omaha, Nebraska passed an ordinance to protect LGBT individuals from discrimination in employment and public accommodations. A coalition of conservatives led by the Omaha Liberty Project then led an effort to repeal the protections through a referendum. It now seems that despite being “darn close,” they have failed to collect enough signatures to force the vote, so the protections will stand.
