Cancellation of "Be the Change" Civil Rights Symposium and "Build It Right Iowa" Conference

The Iowa Civil Rights Commission made the decision to cancel its “Be the Change” Civil Rights Symposium and “Build It Right Iowa” Conference.  This event was scheduled to occur on Friday, April 3, 2020, at The Meadows Events & Conference Center in Altoona, Iowa.  Due to the increasing community spread of COVID-19 and the CDC’s recommendation of canceling gatherings of 50 or more people, we feel it is in the best interest of the presenters, the attendees, and our staff to cancel this event.

The Iowa Civil Rights Commission would like to sincerely thank all those who registered to attend the Symposium and the speakers who generously volunteered their time to present.
