Our plan to endorse a People & Planet candidate for governor of Iowa

The CCI Action board of directors sees Iowa's 2018 governor's race as an opportunity to inject our style of progressive populism into the race to do politics differently. I’m excited to announce that CCI Action has decided to start a formal endorsement process for the governor’s race.

    Specifically, we think our endorsement process is a way to:
  • Advance our organizing campaigns, by making candidates take a stand on our issues.
  • Build our people-power base, bringing like-minded Iowans into our work.
  • Train ourselves on doing electoral field work – knocking on doors, making calls, talking to voters, etc.
Ultimately, we want to lay the groundwork for a possible co-governing relationship – where elected officials govern hand-in-hand with movement organizations like CCI Action.
