How can I become a member of ICAN?

Membership means joining more than 6,000 other Iowans committed to economic, social, and environmental justice. Most of our funding comes from our members, so we ask you to dig deep.

In our work, it's a pay now or pay later situation. Your contribution goes a long way when combined with those of our other members to keep utility rates down, keep our water clean, or preserve Medicaid and Medicare. We can't outspend the opposition, but working together we can out number them with grass roots activism.

Together, we are the majority! Its our members who put the "We Can" in ICAN. Once you've become a member, we keep you updated by phone and by mail, alerting you to new initiatives we are backing and existing consumer and environmentalprotections that are threatened.
