Who We Are
The Iowa Immigration Education Coalition is a multi-perspective group of business, labor, civil rights, religious, immigrant, education, social service, government, and other community leaders united for the purpose of providing Iowans with relevant and timely information about immigration issues and their impact on Iowans and their communities. We invite you to check out our resources, become a member, or provide financial support, which allows us to continue reaching out to Iowans through research, publications, and community activities.
The mission of the Iowa Immigration Education Coalition is to educate Iowans about immigrants and inform the development of common-sense immigration policies that enhance Iowa’s economy and quality of life, preserve families, and affirm the dignity of immigrants.
What We Do
The purpose of the Iowa Immigration Education Coalition is simple – to provide a fact-based approach to sharing information about immigration and immigrants in Iowa. We do this through:
- Community forums, presentations, and policy briefings for the public policymakers, community leaders, and the media
- Research-based, user-friendly materials, publications, and resources in print and online that effectively educate Iowans about immigration issues
- A statewide email network of individuals and organizations who have access to and interest in information about immigration in Iowa
- A one-stop website that provides information, research, conferences and event opportunities, resources, and links to related information and organizations
