Iowa Women Initiating Social Change

Iowa Women Initiating Social Change, or IWIS, is an organization that is affiliated with the Women’s Resource and Action Center (WRAC). Their claim to fame is an event called Take Back The Night, which they organize for Iowa City. The event is an annual rally/march that was started in 1975 and was aimed at raising awareness about violence against women, but recently has grown to include violence against all genders, including transgender people. They invite speakers from many organizations to offer services to victims of sexual violence. The goal of Take Back The Night is to provide a safe and empowering environment for victims. IWIS informs, provides help, and strives to, as the name implies, initiate a social change in attitudes. If you would like to be a part of Take Back The Night, check out the flyer below.
