BEHIND ON RENT is a new 25-minute film by Lincoln filmmaker Gabriella Parsons that shares the stories of housing-insecure Nebraskans and their families amid the COVID-19 pandemic. BEHIND ON RENT highlights the human toll of our burgeoning eviction crisis and features those who are working to protect our neighbors.


Join Filmmaker Gabriella Parsons, Lincoln Commission on Human Rights Director Mindy Rush Chipman, and Community Organizer Isabel Salas as they discuss the issues, efforts, and challenges presented in the film BEHIND ON RENT. This roundtable and Q+A, moderated by Civic Nebraska’s Steve Smith, was conducted Dec. 18, 2020.

 Everyone in our community has a story. As we move forward together, Speak Up is sharing stories from Nebraskans who are directly affected by housing insecurity and eviction through a series of short films.
