Iowans with Disabilities in Action

Iowa Disability Vote Coalition

Iowa Disability Vote Coalition

The Iowa Disability Vote Coalition (IDVC) is a network of Iowa allies working together to create and grow the political power of Iowans with disabilities.

Collectively, more than 450,000 Iowans living with disabilities can make a significant impact on the public policies and practices that affect their daily lives.  The IDVC, a nonpartisan organization, provides essential information and resources to Iowans with disabilities to ensure they understand their voting rights, have access to the electoral process and receive the education needed to understand electoral and political processes. 

Goal

The coalition works to remove the barriers that exist and prevent those with disabilities from fully obtaining the information, resources and access to become actively engaged in civic and political processes.  The goal of the IDVC is to develop a disability voting bloc that is recognized statewide as having influence over public policy decisions.  The coalition brings together organizational partners, Iowans with disabilities and their advocates to collectively raise their voice and make an impact on the decisions that affect their daily lives.
