Each legislative session, the nonpartisan ACLU of Iowa lobbies extensively on a variety of issues.
ACLU of Iowa staff work year round to make sure that Iowa's laws and government promote civil liberties and protect our most fundamental rights and liberties.
When the Iowa Legislature is in session January through April, our team is at the statehouse, attending and speaking at subcommittee and committee meetings and working directly with legislators and government officials. (Shown here are ACLU of Iowa Legal Director Rita Bettis and ACLU of Iowa Policy Director Daniel Zeno. Not shown is Pete McRoberts, an ACLU of Iowa contract lobbyist.)
