B.A.D. 416 Signs, 2000

 File — Folder: 2019-077

Scope and Contents

Two yard signs opposing Nebraska ballot initiative 416. Both signs read "Vote against 416" and "B.A.D. 416" with lines through this text. One sign is mounted on metal for placement in a yard with an addition sign reading "Keep things the same!" stapled to the top of the sign. Initiative 416 amended the state "constitution to make it unconstitutional for the state to recognize or perform same-sex marriage or civil unions. The referendum was approved on November 7, 2000, by 70% of the voters." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebraska_Initiative_416) It was struck down in 2015, with the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision.
