I will work to establish economic human rights as law in Iowa.

Human rights are the foundation for freedom, justice, and peace in the world. Nearly all laws are about property. Property is owned disproportionately by the very few. The rest of us have little wealth or property.


Therefore, most Iowans have next to no freedom, justice, or peace. Everyone in Iowa must have these rights. By the way, “We the People” is all of us.
