Announcing our 2020 Legislative Priorities

Advocacy, Press Releases

As the Iowa Legislature convenes this week, PCA Iowa has set a bold agenda to support and strengthen families and children in Iowa. We look forward to engaging with a broad coalition of stakeholders throughout the legislative session, including local child abuse prevention councils, prevention partners, and strategic partners aligned with our mission.

Our organization believes that effective policies, appropriate funding, and community awareness of child abuse prevention increases the likelihood a child will grow up in a safe and healthy community.

Learn more about our Legislative Agenda below:

Require a “Notification of Intent” to Homeschool Children

Enact Sexual Abuse Prevention Policy for Iowa’s Children

Provide Consistent and Adequate Funding for the Child and Adult Mental Health System

Support Policy and Legislation Promoting Child and Family Resilience
