Who We Are

The Iowa Labor History Society is a non-profit made up of individuals and affiliate organizations that have joined together to preserve and promote the rich history of Iowa's workers—the lives, labors, and struggles that shaped the history of our state.


We are always looking for new ways to advance our mission of preserving and promoting Iowa labor and working-class history. Our current activities include support for National History Day in Iowa, an annual public conference, bus tours, historical site development, and an ongoing partnership with the Iowa Labor History Oral Project.
