WHAT IS ACTIVATE IOWA?

We provide information so you can make progress happen.

Our mission is to provide an information infrastructure for progressive organizations, campaigns, and activists in Iowa. We maintain a comprehensive list of progressive events in Iowa.  We have the only published list of progressive organizations for Iowa. We keep track of who is running for the Iowa House and Senate. On our statehouse hub page we track legislation in the Iowa legislature–and we have a double-checked list of lowa legislative forums. We do all this in three venues: this website, Facebook, and Twitter.

We are not an activist group like Indivisible or CCI.  Our aim is to be a progressive information clearinghouse–a source of reliable, up-to-date information that activists can use to inform their actions.
