People First of Nebraska


The Self-advocacy movement for people with disabilities in Nebraska has a long History. The first self-advocacy chapter began in Omaha in 1975 under the sponsorship of the Greater Omaha Association for Retarded Citizens. Subsequently, other local self-advocacy chapters were established and their leaders came together in 1978 to establish a statewide organization, People First of Nebraska(PFN). From 1978 to 1985, the work of People First of Nebraska was supported entirely by volunteers. Since 1978, People First has planned and organized an annual statewide self-advocacy convention which is held in October. In 1985, People First of Nebraska, Inc. became incorporated as a nonprofit corporation with a mission to teach people with disabilities how to speak out for themselves and make them aware of their rights and responsibilites as citizens.
