Nebraska Appleseed is a nonprofit organization that fights for justice and opportunity for all Nebraskans. We take a systemic approach to complex issues - child welfare, immigration policy, affordable health care, and poverty - and we take our work wherever it will do the most good, whether that’s in the courthouse, at the Capitol, or in the community. Every year they ask designers from across the state to produce a limited edition signed poster to be auctioned as a fundraiser for the organization.
It is widely believed that many of our anti-drug laws have racially disfavored African Americans and low-income communities. While recent bipartisan legislation begins to reform some of the sentencing laws that have wrongly and disproportionately harmed African-Americans.
“A Threat to Justice” is a call to action, a reminder, and a rally for America to remember Dr. Martin Luther King Junior's words, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
