There are a number of ways you can work with the ACLU of Iowa to further civil liberties in our state.


We need help with everything from clerical assistance and research to helping staff booths at events to writing letters to the editor to doing translations to taking photographs or shooting video.

If you have a skill, we're sure to have a need for it! You don't even need to be in the Des Moines area. We have volunteer work that can be done wherever you are located.

To get started, fill out this questionnaire about you, your skills, and times that you are available.
