Mission Statement

We are the Democrat Party organization of Iowa's First Congressional District. We are committed to the principles of social justice and democracy; to uphold civil rights, civil liberties and constitutional government. We promote the election of a Democrat member of the United States Congress in this District. We also assist the election of state legislators whose boundaries cross county lines within the District, serve as a liaison between the county Democratic organizations and the Iowa Democratic Party, and provide a forum for county leaders. In odd years, we conduct a political training workshop.
