About Iowans with Disabilities in Action

Iowans with Disabilities in Action is funded by the DD Council and is a nonpartisan, statewide initiative dedicated to generating greater civic and political participation among people with disabilities.

Collectively, Iowans with disabilities could make up one of the state’s largest blocs of influence; however, research shows that apathy, a lack of confidence and other barriers prevent thousands from engaging in advocacy.

Iowans with Disabilities in Action is a resource for Iowans with any type of disability.  This important initiative offers unique tools intended to inform, educate and empower Iowans with disabilities to more effectively advocate for change that increases their opportunities to be productive, independent and included members of their communities.
