About Iowa PIRG
For more than 20 years, Consumer Program Director Ed Mierzwinski has helped us stand up against big banks and credit card companies.
An Independent Voice For Consumers
Iowa PIRG is a consumer group that stands up to powerful interests whenever they threaten our health and safety, our financial security or our right to fully participate in our democratic society.
For decades, we’ve stood up for consumers, countering the influence of big banks, insurers, chemical manufacturers and other powerful special interests.
Our team of researchers uncovers the facts; our staff bring our findings to the public, through the media as well as one-on-one interactions; and our advocates bring the voice of the public to the halls of power on behalf of consumers.
You Can Help
Your support will help us do the research, advocacy and grassroots organizing that it will take to connect Iowa to future with the Midwest passenger rail.
We can bring Iowans closer together and connected to major metro centers from Omaha to Chicago and beyond, we just need to make sure Governor Branstad to gets on board.
