"It has truly been an honor to participate in the "I Choose Love" campaign here in Omaha. This hallmark movement serves as a wonderful avenue to bring our community closer together through open communication and collaboration that is rooted in love and peace. By embodying the core values of this campaign, we are able to further our mission which is to serve others with integrity, professionalism, and compassion at the core of every decision we make. I firmly believe all community organizations and leaders would benefit from joining the "I Choose Love USA" movement."

- Omaha Fire Chief Olsen


“The past year has been hard.  We’ve seen racial tensions, a divisive election, and an attack on the U.S. Capitol building—all while battling the coronavirus pandemic.  It’s not easy to see injustice and to respond with peace.  It’s difficult to disagree with our neighbors and yet still stand in solidarity with them.  But we all have the responsibility to choose love.  We have to come together, treat each other charitably, and look for common ground if we’re going to move forward together as a nation.  That’s why I am a part of this I Choose Love campaign.”


~ Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts


"The Omaha Police Department was proud to host and be an early participant in the national - I Choose Love USA campaign. City by city, and state by state is how healing and trust can be restored to our nation. I want to thank the leadership of Les "pee wee" Harrison and encourage other Chiefs of Police to be a part of the initiative"

- Todd Schmaderer, Omaha Nebraska Chief of Police
