In the wake of the Nebraska Unicameral’s historic action in repealing the death penalty over a gubernatorial veto, let’s not forget to say thanks. Among Greens, nonviolence is a core value and repealing the death penalty just makes sense. For many members of the politically diverse Unicameral, this was a more difficult decision. Let them know that it was the right decision! Also, saying thanks is just a nice thing to do and a great way to develop more of a dialogue with your elected representatives.
