Our vision for changing “business as usual” politics starts and stops with people.

That’s why the Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund challenges big-money interests and brings real people — lots of them — into the center of our political system.That’s how we’ll win an Iowa that puts clean water first and serves the public interest, the common good. And that’s how we’ll make sure Iowans get paid a living wage.

Nobody’s going to move that agenda for us. It’s up to us to engage and deliver.

We’re happy to announce we’ve found a gubernatorial candidate who agrees with us andthat’s Cathy Glasson, a long-time registered nurse and union leader from Coralville.Cathy has bold positions on issues like clean water, healthcare for all, Fight for $15 and more.

She knows elections are an opportunity to build the people-power base we need to move our issues and win policies that make life better for a lot more people.

She also shares our understanding that no single candidate will solve the problems facingeveryday people. We need a grassroots movement of Iowans all over the state standing up,speaking out and being active in our communities- and in the streets — 365 days a year,not just at election time.

That’s how we’ll create the change we need.
