“Seize The Means of Political Production!”

“Any Ole Blue Just Won’t Do!”


We Support Many Issues!


  1. Fighting Climate Change – We support ending fossil fuel use, and switching to renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. We’d like to see a program that encourages or helps communities start Community Solar Gardens and helping residents placing solar panels or wind mills on homes. The US should be a leader in the fight against climate change.
  2. Fighting Pollution – Recently banning plastic bags has become an issue locally, we support banning plastic bags and plastic straws. We also support a city or statewide recycling program. We support encouraging public transportation to cut down on pollution from personal vehicles.
  3. Economic Reforms – We support the Green New Deal. Besides supporting an environment friendly economy that bans fossil fuels, mandates renewable energy, encourages urban agriculture and we support industrial hemp and legal marijuana in a truly green economy! We also support incentivizing locally based businesses like consumer cooperatives and worker owned cooperatives to play a heavy role in local economics.
  4. Civil Rights – We want people to be free to be themselves, to enjoy the fruits of a green economy and a clean environment. We support advancements in racial justice, ending police brutality, reforming criminal justice, respecting the space of marginalized communities, ensuring all women’s rights & protecting our queer & trans siblings from discrimination.
  5. Political Reform – We believe in order to ensure a clean and safe economy and environment, our political system itself will need to change. We support universal automatic voter registration, a national voting holiday, and a multi-partisan system with multi-member districts, and ranked choice voting. We believe the political parties, if we allow them to remain, must be responsible to their respective voters. We believe corporate money should be taken out of US politics. The Peoples’ Voices must be heard if we are to create a clean and safe economy and environment.

Nebraska Grassroots Progressives says their endorsement slate offers Nebraskans a much needed definitive and progressive point of view in local area politics.

“I’m proud of our slate of candidates,” says Ken Riter, Group Leader, “I hope they do well, and I think they will.” Ken Riter adds, “I challenge our candidates to tackle our nation’s deep racial issues, to sponsor or introduce policies that end race-based suffering, end poverty, hunger & homelessness, and offer marginalized persons a permanent escape from the violence of state enforced police brutality.”

Progressive activist Carol Dicks points out, “Nebraskans need representatives who are unafraid to work toward radically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, confronting how racism affects us all, prioritizing all levels of education, narrowing the income and wealth gap, and promoting universal health care.”

Nebraska Grassroots Progressives began as a group of activists coming together in early 2016, right after the Nebraska Caucus, with the hopes of cleaning out corruption in the Democratic Party, while shifting Nebraska’s political landscape to the left.

“The candidates we endorsed are an important representation of the fact that if we have any chance to win, we need to steer hard and proud to the left and be crystal clear that our values include things like universal healthcare and a living minimum wage,” says progressive activist Becky Curlis.

Nebraska Grassroots Progressives also endorsed candidates in the 2016 & 2017 election cycles.
