We’re Empowering Iowans to Be the Voice for Kids

Iowans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

In 2017, we supported two bills that provided Iowa schools with more flexibility in how they spend their Statewide Voluntary Preschool dollars. The bills each received overwhelming bipartisan support and were signed into law by former Governor Terry Branstad in May 2017.

We’re empowering everyday Iowans to be the voice for kids. 

We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

Learn how we’re investing in Iowa’s future.
