There are several ways you can work with the ACLU of Iowa to further civil liberties in our state and nation.


The ACLU of Iowa's current advocacy focus is protecting reproductive freedom in Iowa. Click here to find out how you can take action in your area to protect the quickly diminishing rights of Iowans to control their bodies and their lives.

Once you sign up, we will work with you on what you feel comfortable doing and what skills and interests you have. You decide how, when, and what you want to do. Email if you have questions or would like to get involved in other ways. 


Grow your advocacy skills with the ACLU of Iowa’s advocacy resources! These resources will help you make your case with local, state, and national elected officials. We invite you to use these resources to advocate for improving the lives of Iowans, reducing inequities, and upholding civil rights and civil liberties across the state. Check out the resource library here.
