On Tuesday, September 18, One Iowa Action released its first round of candidate endorsements for the upcoming election. This is the first time the organization has made electoral endorsements in several years.
“We’ve been preparing to get back into the electoral sphere for over a year,” One Iowa Action Executive Director Daniel Hoffman-Zinnel said. “The current political climate is hostile and uncertain for LGBTQ Iowans, particularly transgender and non-binary Iowans.
