The group kicked off a campaign on Tuesday with rallies in dozens of cities across the country.
The group compiled statistics that show investing in a universal early childhood education program could reduce the number of Iowans in prison by more than 800, which would save the state approximately $38 million a year.
"We see all too often how demonstrative it is that a lack of education leads to a life of crime," said Thompson.
If passed, the proposal would cost about $75 million over the course of 10-years; according to Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, the country spends that same amount on federal, state and local jails in just one year.
