The Iowa Environmental Council is a nonpartisan non-profit statewide policy and advocacy organization. We work on federal, state, and local public policy issues to ensure a just, healthy environment and sustainable future for all Iowans. Through education, advocacy, and coalition-building, we raise awareness, generate action, and create large-scale change. 

During legislative session and throughout the year, our staff members, professional advocates, stakeholders, and volunteers are engaged at the Capitol tracking bills, building coalitions, meeting with and educating legislators, gathering voices, and advancing the protection of Iowa's environment. 

Iowa's 2024 Legislative Session gavels in on January 9, 2024. Prepare for and engage throughout the year using our advocacy tools.
