Iowa is Better Than This!
Statewide event Feb. 16
laments Iowa’s discriminatory legislation

During the past year, the Iowa Legislature proposed and even codified into law bills that attempt to normalize discrimination, reduce voting access and hurt many citizens of this st0ate. Legislators are proposing more of the same during this year’s session of the General Assembly.

To call out these efforts and stand up for the rights of all Iowa citizens, particularly the most vulnerable, One Human Family of the QCA, along with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of Iowa, is sponsoring a free statewide “Iowa is Better Than This” event, a lament of discriminatory legislation, at 5 p.m. Feb. 16.

The hybrid event will include live and online participation from those at 10 different sites around the state (Ames, Burlington, Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Dubuque, Iowa City, and Sioux City, who will highlight how the discriminatory actions of the Iowa Legislature, many of which were signed into law by the governor, will negatively impact state residents.

Issues of concern addressed during the event will include, but will not be limited to:

~LGBTQ+ issues
~Voting rights
~Gun accessibility
~Housing discrimination
~Educational curriculum
~The right to peaceful protest
~Treatment of Immigrants



POWERFUL LOVE Campaign Kickoff

Our country and our community, has a White Male Fear Problem. Not all, but too many, white males think this country belongs to them: it doesn’t. They think men are superior to women: they aren’t. They think the problems in our communities are due to minorities: the problems in our communities are due to systemic racism and oppression of the poor (which includes, ironically, poor white males). They think – no, the problem really is that they don’t think: they merely judge from a position in our society of entitlement and privilege and have knee-jerk reactions in response. What these white males fear most is that minorities with too much power will treat them the way that minorities have historically been treated by white male run socieity.

Please reject this white male driven culture of fear. One Human Family QCA is again launching it’s Powerful Love campaign. Billboards, T-shirts and yard signs allow you to proclaim that you believe in love enough to stand up against racism. That your love respects the right of all religions to practice freely. That your love understands and respects that people love differently than you. I invite you to check out these messages at www.onehumanfamilyqca.org.
