about the iowapridenetwork

The Iowa Pride Network is a state-wide non-profit organization that works directly with students, helping empower them to start and enhance GSA’s in their high schools and colleges, while building a statewide network that offers support, mentoring, educational, advocacy and networking opportunities. In addition, the Iowa Pride Network fights bigotry and intolerance against LGBTQA students in Iowa; educates policy makers and educators on issues facing LGBTQA students; and advocates for the interests of these students on the state and local levels.
