A Future Worth Fighting For Poster Show

30 Iowa artists will be handpicked to create an issue-inspired poster to be sold at the show.

We believe in a future for Iowa where everyone is in and no one is left out. We believe in a Iowa where every person is able to live joyful, fulfilling lives, regardless of where they live, what they look like, or what their background is. At Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, we believe in a future worth fighting for.

In our year of resistance, thousands of Iowans took action with us. Iowa CCI  members didn’t stop dreaming about what is possible or imagining how we could do politics differently. Doing this work out of love, compassion, righteous anger, and a shared knowledge that we are interconnected made all the difference.

In 2018, the stakes are only getting higher. Now is not a time for half measures and empty promises. Now is the time to demand the bold solutions our communities need and hold elected officials accountable to we the people. Let’s shape the future of Iowa and this country for generations to come.

Issues: Healthcare for all, Clean Water, Racial Justice, A Just Climate Transition, Black Lives Matter
