One Iowa provides interactive trainings to law enforcement officers and administrators at all levels. We help them understand the challenges LGBTQ people face in the criminal justice system, and help educate law enforcement on how to professionally and humanely treat LGBTQ persons.
We aim to open a dialogue between the LGBTQ community and law enforcement. Through comprehensive training programs, we help law enforcement and corrections officers understand and confront discrimination against LGBTQ individuals, and create a safer environment for all.
- learn how gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation contribute to our identities
