I will take a stand and work hard for the issues that are important to all of us. I will fight for our children, our seniors, our jobs, our economy, our parks, our equity issues, our health, our schools and our safety–for all Nebraskans!

Patty Pansing Brooks

Nebraska State Senator

I was incredibly proud to stand with my friend and colleague, State Senator Adam Morfeld, and so many other fabulous Nebraskans today to advocate for LB 173 at the Stand Up & Speak Out Rally. This bill prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. No one should be punished solely because of who they are or who they love. ... See MoreSee Less

State Senator Patty Pansing Brooks shared The Women's Fund of Greater Omaha's photo.

Thank you to The Women's Fund of Greater Omaha for their great work on this report. The issues outlined in this report highlight the need for more stringent penalties for human trafficking here in Nebraska. My bill, LB 289, sends the message to traffickers and purchasers that their heinous conduct will not be tolerated in Nebraska anymore.

Every month, 900 individuals are sold for sex, often multiple times, in Nebraska. Now, a research report from the Women’s Fund of Omaha defines the commercial sex industry across Nebraska and identifies the proportion of the industry where trafficking may be occurring. The report, “Nebraska’s Commercial Sex Market,” characterizes individuals sold for sex as well as explores the interconnected market of what’s happening in our state. Thanks to the Human Trafficking Initiative (HTI), who conducted the research through Creighton University Heider College of Business and to State Senator Patty Pansing Brooks, who introduced legislation this session to increase penalties for trafficking and solicitation.
