Life-long civil rights activist and long-time NADP member Hugh Bullock passed away on June 20, 2010. For more than 50 years, Hugh and his wife Leola challenged discriminatory practices in housing, employment, and opportunity wherever they found them. His quest for justice drew him towards various organizations including the Police Review Board, Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, the NAACP, and the Malone Community Center.
The staff and Board of Directors at NADP feel privileged to have know and worked with Mr. Bullock as we sought an end to Nebraska’s unjust capital punishment system, and his presence will be greatly missed. The family has requested that memorials be made to Newman United Methodist Church or the Malone Community Center Foundation.
