Who we are

The IIRON Education Fund, NFP is a charitable organization devoted to training people to create public lives, to understand, build and exercise power through collective action and to address the issues facing our families and communities. Every day, decisions are made by elected officials, government bodies and corporations that affect the lives of ordinary people. Without a clear understanding of these decisions, the power behind them, and an ability to mobilize people power, ordinary people have no chance to have their voices heard. IIRON Education Fund provides the tools and the collective power to give ordinary people a voice. The IIRON Education Fund, NFP, occasionally and within the limits permitted to 501c3 organizations, partners with other organization to educate people about public policies that impact their lives. IIRON Education Fund, NFP does not participate in partisan electoral or political activities.
