Matthew Covington
Strategic Operations Director
Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement

After completing a year in Americorps doing lead-abatement in Minneapolis and receiving his Masters in Public Policy, Matthew knew he wanted to work with everyday people to push for bold policies that put people before profits and communities before corporations. He joined Iowa CCI in 2007 as a neighborhood organizer, and since then has worked on issues related to predatory lending and banking reform, protecting and expanding Social Security and Medicare, and most recently CCI's work to get profits out of healthcare.
