ICAN Education Foundation

The People of the Iowa Citizen Action Network

About

Iowa Citizen Action Network Education Foundation (ICAN EF) has united Iowa’s progressives for over 25 years, and is leading efforts to change the public climate for progressive change. We are uniting citizens, communities and organizations that share a common progressive vision for the future of Iowa, and mobilizing Iowans to take collective action to alter the relations of power and improve the lives of all Iowans.

ICAN EF provides organizing, research, public education materials, training and networking support for issue campaigns to ICAN and its coalition partners and affiliates.

Our recent activities include:

  • Made contact with over 6000 voters in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District to assess their priorities regarding Social Security, Medicare, Fair Taxes, etc. Then provided pertinent information on the issues they indicated as important to them.
  • Helped build a coalition of organizations to educate the general public on the need for Medicaid Expansion in Iowa leading to passage of the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan which will allow 150,000 low-income Iowans to receive insurance.
  • Worked with organizations across Iowa to raise awareness about the federal budget and the effect of budget cuts on Iowa’s most vulnerable populations.
  • Built a coalition of small business owners as an organizing project: The Iowa Main Street Alliance, and continue to add to it as well as keep them informed of policies and laws affecting them, giving them a voice on issues they care about.
  • Working with partners, created the Iowa Fair Courts coalition, shining light on the crisis in the Federal Judiciary and the need to confirm justices to the bench.
