***Are you interested in helping to bring a Stonewall Democrat chapter into the Omaha area? Please contact Ken Riter, 4o2-686-6389. Please leave a message if their is no answer, I go to school full time and work part time. I want to create this chapter, we need this chapter to help keep the rights we’ve won and to help us gain what we deserve as Americans. We need this chapter to help ensure the local Democratic Party stays LGBT friendly and elects LGBT friendly candidates. But, I need people to participate in order to form this organization.
