Connect to A Support System of the Under-Represented
Come alongside us in the creation of a new reality for Latino politics in Iowa. Latinos make up 6 percent of Iowa’s population, but hold less than 1 percent of electoral seats in the state. The Latino Political Network exists to empower and enable the next generation of Latino officials. It will provide the tools, resources, and connections for us fight above our own weight class.
Latinos hold fewer than 20 of the more than 7000 elective offices in Iowa.
Iowa has never elected a Latino to the state legislature or statewide office.
Only one school district in the entire state of Iowa lacks Latino enrollment.
