Hi everybody, with a full year of experience under our belts, we’re about to launch as a legal entity. Along with that launch we have decided to choose a new name and identity consistent with our refocused mission. We plan to identify our organization as Think Forward Iowa, emphasizing our local roots and our commitment to non-partisan reform. We have bought the new domain although we plan to keep ia.hfmovement.org and reroute it.
Think Forward Iowa will focus on 3 things:
Incubating and launching new reform-focused organizations
Hosting events and discussions with politicians and the public about cutting-edge ideas in politics and economics
Building a critical mass of Iowans commited to systemic reform
We are very excited about the new changes and hope that you will join us. Stayed tuned for the hard launch in a few weeks.
Launching Two Seed Campaigns
Along with our new identity, Think Forward Iowa will be helping to launch two organizations focused on two of the issues most important to our community:
Better Ballot Iowa
Better Ballot Iowa is focused on pushing Iowa to adopt Ranked Choice Voting. We will be launching this organization on March 18th, with some help from Rank-the-Vote. This launch is shaping up to be our largest effort yet, so please help spread the word!
Iowans for Universal Basic Income
Iowans for Universal Basic Income is focused on educating Iowans about the potential promise of a national UBI. Working with a number of organizations, we will be conducting outreach campaigns and connecting Iowans with their Congresspeople on this important Issue.
