Are you ready to fight for the future of Iowa?

The stakes are high in 2018! Almost all statewide offices are up for election, including
the Governor’s seat. This election will shape Iowa for generations. We need to fight
today for our shared future and be clear about what it should look like.

Join us July 21 for an energizing, inspiring, and powerful day that will turn the resistance of today into political power for the bold solutions we need — healthcare for all, clean energy, clean water, living wages, and racial justice.

Our annual statewide convention, A Future Worth Fighting For, features:

  • Engaging issue-focused workshops to deepen your analysis and activism
  • Powerful speeches from top movement doers and thinkers
  • Opportunities to connect and strategize with like-minded neighbors and friends

Announcing our 2018 convention keynote:

Senator Nina Turner

Nina is a fearless truth teller and insightful agent for social change. Widely known as a national surrogate for U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders on the 2016 campaign trail, she now serves as president of Our Revolution, where she works to empower progressive leaders and elevate political consciousness.

Favianna Rodriguez
Featured Panelist and Workshop Leader

Even the slickest issue campaign can’t compete with a poet’s turn-of-phrase, that song stuck in your head, or the power of dancing together in the street. That’s why Bay-Area cultural organizer and printmaker Favianna Rodriguez cultivates a practice of bringing activists together around artmaking that impacts societal and political change. We’re thrilled to announce that she will be a featured speaker at CCI Action’s 2018 annual convention.

Rashad Robinson
Panelist

Rashad leads the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, driven by over one million members, and appears regularly in major media outlets as a source, guest, and op-ed author.

Formed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Color of Change uses online resources to strengthen the voice of African Americans. They have successfully developed strategies to force over 100 corporations out of ALEC, frame and win net neutrality as a major civil rights issue, successfully hold local district attorneys accountable, and more.
