A Collective Voice for Iowa’s Children

The Children’s Policy Coalition is a group of almost 30 Iowa organizations committed to raising children’s issues in state and federal elections. Our members are service providers, professional associations, faith organizations, community builders, and advocates. We are a voice for Iowa’s children, educating voters, lawmakers, and candidates for state office about the urgent issues facing our kids and families.
