The pandemic has not dampened our efforts to reach out to Iowa legislators and encourage them to support good bills and to vote against bills that could harm our most fundamental civil liberties.

We are hosting four lunch-and-learn sessions as part of our Lobby Day Every Day series. Please consider joining us for one or more on Wednesdays, from noon to 12:30 via Zoom.

Learn how you can get involved and make a difference in determining what legislation is passed and what, deservedly, never makes it out of committee.
