Event description
Join us April 5-6 for the Our Voices Iowa Summit so we can make our power heard in the decisions made about our bodies, lives, and futures.

About this Event

*This event is intended to bring together a community of young women-identifying, non-binary, gender nonconforming, and femme folx (and allies!) ages 16-28. You do not have to be a student to attend.*

In city halls, state capitols and the chambers of Congress elected officials make decisions about our bodies, lives, and futures without listening to our voices.

We are going to change that.

That is why Platform and University of Iowa’s Women’s Resource and Action Center are teaming up to make our power heard and make change happen. Now, we’re asking YOU to join us at the Our Voices Iowa Summit.

From April 5 to April 6, young women-identifying, non-binary, gender nonconforming, and femme leaders - along with our allies - are convening first at the University of Iowa in Iowa City to mobilize.

Throughout Sunday of the Summit, you will learn how (or freshen up) to channel our stories into lobbying power, get the rundown on state-wide policy issues from the leaders on the ground, develop your own policy goals, and build up voter registration and relational organizing skills. THEN on Monday, we will hop on a bus (provided) and you will meet with your state lawmakers to advance those goals.

Join unstoppable young leaders from across the state to make clear that if lawmakers want our votes, they have a duty to advance and protect our rights.

Mark your calendars, tell everyone, and get your tickets here.
