About infoNet Iowa

Your elected officials face very difficult choices everyday, and the decisions they make affect your life.  The people representing you in the US Congress and at the Iowa State Capitol need to know your story, so they can make informed decisions. Now more than ever, it is important for people affected by disability to speak up.

Iowans with Disabilities in Action (ID Action) and the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council created this advocacy forum (infoNET) to give you the information, tools, resources and opportunities you need to take action on the issues important to you.  But it's up to you to do something.  What will you do?                                                      

infoNET is a free service available to Iowans of all abilities who want to become more informed and effective advocates. Our newsletter and network of resources helps advocate with disabilities stay up-to-date on current issues by:

  • Letting you know what the Legislature is up to - and what you can do to influence their decisions.
  • Keeping tabs on the Iowa Governor's office and state agency initiatives.
  • Reporting on what's going on in the US Congress
  • Suggesting ways to make you more effective in your advocacy.
  • Providing tips to make your message powerful and persuasive.
  • Reporting objectively on public policy being discussed.

  • Connecting you with other advocates using social media, online training, and community conversations.
  • Giving you the tools to help you become a better advocate.
