What are the lived experiences of Iowans from marginalized communities?
Our research tells the story of Iowans from marginalized communities. Our findings help shape policy that supports all Iowans.
80% of participants identified documentation and lack of state-issued ID as an issue for the Latinx community. Fear of driving without a valid state license deters community members from driving their children to school, going to work, and caring for their families.
Iowa is one of only 3 states that imposes a lifetime ban on voting for people with felony convictions, meaning that 65,000 individuals and nearly 10% of Iowa's African-American population cannot vote.
