2019 Iowans with Disabilities in Action Survey
We want to hear from you! We take your comments VERY seriously. Every year we make changes to ensure our resources, publications and websites meet your needs. The survey is short and should take you only a few minutes to finish.
The first 300 people to complete the survey will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $50 gift cards.
Thanks again for helping us out – and letting us know what you think!
Iowans with Disabilities in Action is a nonpartisan, statewide initiative dedicated to generating greater civic and political participation among people with disabilities.
Collectively, Iowans with disabilities could make up one of the state’s largest blocs of influence; however, research shows that a lack of confidence, apathy and other barriers prevent thousands from engaging in advocacy.

Take Your Legislator to Work Campaign
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month and throughout the month, Iowans with Disabilities in Action will conduct the Take your Legislator to Work Campaign. This campaign is intended to increase awareness that every Iowan with or without a disability should have opportunities and choices to have meaningful employment in the community.
Iowans with Disabilities in Action is interested in working with people with disabilities who would like to take their Legislator to Work! The visit will typically last between 30-45 minutes and it is your opportunity to share with your legislator(s) what you do at work and why it is important in your life.
Iowans with Disabilities in Action is a project of the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council. The DD Council is a federally funded state agency that advocates for the development of services and supports so that Iowans with developmental disabilities can make choices and take control of their lives. Visit the DD Council website to learn more.
