Issues:

Location: 419 SW 8th Street Des Moines IA 50309 USA

Mission: One Iowa is the state's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocacy organization. Our mission is to support full equality for LGBT individuals living in Iowa through grassroots efforts and education.
Results: In 2009, the Iowa State Supreme Court ruled in favor of the freedom to marry for gay and lesbian couples. Since then, we have been working to protect all families. In 2012, we launched our Why Marriage Matters Iowa public education initiative to help spread the word about the importance of marriage equality here in Iowa by equipping supporters with the tools they need to share their personal story about why marriage matters to them. Why Marriage Matters Iowa is a project of Freedom to Marry–the campaign to win marriage nationwide–and the One Iowa Education Fund. For more information, visit www.whymarriagemattersiowa.org.

The One Iowa staff is one of the most professional group of people that I have had the pleasure to work with. They work around the clock to bring accurate and insightful information to Iowans regarding the issues of civil marriage equality. Sharon Malheiro
