One Iowa

One Iowa

One Iowa is the state’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocacy organization in the state. Our mission is to support full equality for LGBT individuals living in Iowa through grassroots efforts and education. Formed in 2005, the organization has been an effective advocate for the community. In coalition with progressive and political allies, recent achievements include civil rights legislation to protect the LGBT community against employment and housing discrimination, safe schools legislation establishing anti-bullying policies in Iowa’s schools, and defeating anti-marriage legislation.

Immediately following the April 3, 2009 Supreme Court ruling, anti-equality opponents wasted no time trying to undermine the historic victory. No less than four attempts were made at the Iowa State Legislature to challenge the ruling. Through the work of One Iowa, the efforts of our allies and crucial support from fair-minded legislators, each of these attempts failed.

However, the struggle to maintain equality for LGBT Iowans is far from over. We know our opponents will continue to undermine the crucial gains we have made and we need your help. For more information about our work and to get involved, visit our website.
