We’re forming a new community group focused on combating racism in our community and working towards racial justice. Help us envision the scope of the group, and strategize its structure to most effectively work towards racial equity. All interested people are welcome to join, with a special invitation towards those who would like to commit to ongoing antiracist work within our community. Scroll down for upcoming events related to this topic.
GenERAtion Gender Equality
NEIPJC has joined the GenERAation Gender Equality Coalition and we are ready to do the work to push for gender equality in policies affecting us as Iowans. Led by youth, Generation Gender Equality is Generation Ratify’s legislative agenda that will work to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment and pass laws that will further advance the legal equality of all people, regardless of gender through creating a coalition of groups dedicated to advancing gender equality.
GenERAtion Ratify will collaborate with NEIPJC to pursue projects that will advance these pieces of legislation. This plan not only focuses on ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, but it also pushes for laws that fall squarely at the intersection of gender equality at the state level.
LGBTQIA+ Summer Youth Group
We envision regular gatherings of 6th-12th graders + first year college students returning home for the summer. Each session would be a mix of providing a space for LGBT youth to meet and hang out, sharing if they want to, and education with an emphasis on LGBT Sexual and Gender Identities, mental health, and concepts like consent, etc.
Contact us if you’d like to become involved. In the meantime, stay tuned!
