Sign Our Petition to Defend the Iowa Civil Rights Act

Iowa’s legislative session starts today. Our legislators are back at the capitol, working to craft policies that will impact all Iowans. Their actions will determine our state’s future.

At One Iowa, we are proud of our state’s legacy of equality, and the Iowa Civil Rights Act is a crucial part of that legacy. Since 2007, this important law has included explicit anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people. Fewer than half of all states have these protections on the books for the LGBTQ community, and we are proud that Iowa is one of those states.

Unfortunately, we saw attempts during last year’s legislative session to dilute or alter these protections. We fought back, and those attempts were unsuccessful. We anticipate more efforts to weaken the Iowa Civil Rights Act this year.

Sign our petition to let legislators know that the Iowa Civil Rights Act should not be diluted or weakened in any way.

All Iowans deserve equal protection under the law, and the Iowa Civil RightsAct provides that protection.

Thank you for joining us as we continue to fight for LGBTQ Iowans.
