One Iowa is a vital and life changing organization for Iowans and all Americans. The staff of this Equality Organization and its One Iowa Education Fund have made an important impact on the understanding Iowans now have about the value of marriage equality. Through the hard work of sharing peoples' personal stories via house parties, events, phone calls and all means of public media, One Iowa is helping everyone to learn about and understand 'Why Marriage Matters'.

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
