The purpose of the DAWN’s (Democratic Activist Women’s Network) List awards is to acknowledge Democratic activist women across Iowa. DAWN’s List is not part of the Democratic Party. It was started 23 years ago to recruit larger numbers of progressive Democratic women run for State and local offices throughout Iowa.

DAWN’s List’s mission:

1. Raise awareness, across the state, of the importance of gender equity in public offices.
2. Establish a strong, state-wide grassroots network, supporting the election of Democratic pro-choice women to public office.
3. Publicly support currently elected pro-choice, Democratic women in the Iowa legislature and assist in their re-election campaigns.
