BrightEyes tn 1 tag

JAN 25, 2012 - Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, and 16 other musicians from Omaha are all urging the state lawmakers to not pass a proposal that would ban Omaha and other communities from passing any anti-discrimination ordinances or laws. Mynabirds singer and songwriter Laura Berhenn who organized the group of musicians told Paul Hammel of the Omaha World-Herald, “Don't keep selling Omaha as another fly-over Midwestern city, We have a lot of progressive people here who are welcoming. ” Some of the musical groups involved are Azure Ray, The Faint, Honeybee and Hers, the Conduits and more.

The letter in part said:

"Dear Senators,

We are musicians who have chosen to live in the Omaha community. Our work has had national and international media attention, and when we tour around the country and around the world, we want to be proud to say that we’ve come from Omaha, Nebraska. It’s extremely important to us that the policies of our community reflect our values.

We want to continue to be proud of our community and keep our creative class and entrepreneurial spirit strong.  Please don’t let LB 912 move forward and let the state of Nebraska block the City of Omaha’s attempt to do the right thing and create equal opportunity for everyone."
