Founded in 1975, the mission of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement is to empower and unite grassroots people of all ethnic backgrounds to take control of their communities; involve them in identifying problems and needs and in taking action to address them; and be a vehicle for social, economic, and environmental justice. We are everyday people who talk, act and get things done on issues that impact us the most. Issues like having a factory farm move in next door, devaluing your property and ruining your quality of life; or shady lenders that take advantage of families. This past year, we fought for and won Iowa’s first ever clean air standards for factory farms. And over the past 3 years, members have helped families recover over $4 million from shady lenders.
