About our Coalition

About our Coalition

Iowa's judicial system is one of the finest in the country.

To keep it that way, Iowans from all political spectrums should resist efforts by out-of-state extremist groups who are funding efforts to politicize our courts. If politics and campaign money are allowed into the courts, justice will be for sale. Groups from across the state are working together to counter the effort of extremists from hijacking Iowa’s courts. Justice Not Politics is a broad based, nonpartisan coalition of organizations and Iowans across the political spectrum —- progressive to conservative; Republicans, Independents and Democrats —- all who are committed to protecting Iowa’s courts and our system of merit selection and retention.
