3.3.17 First funnel reportback
There’s no way to sugarcoat it.
Republicans at the Statehouse are carrying water for big-moneyed corporate special interests at our expense.
We’ve seen attacks on our water, our wages, and our healthcare. We’ve seen attacks on women, immigrants, and people of color.
The good news is that some of these attacks didn’t make it through the “first funnel,” which means they are no longer eligible for debate this year. We now have a clearer picture of the biggest threats that we’re facing.
But even though some of these bad bills did move forward, we still have hope.
Our hope lies in resistance and organizing. We have seen thousands of folks across the state take action for people and planet. And we’re seizing this opportunity to bring more activists who share your vision and values to change Iowa for the better.
They have money and corporate lobbyists. We have YOU!
Now is the time to double down and raise our voices together to say NO to our common threats. We need you – more than ever – with us.
We need you:
- To pack Monday’s hearings and speak out against these attacks (starting at 10 AM with a hearing on dismantling DMWW)
- With us on the weekends – at local legislative forums
- With us on the phones – activating more members like you
We know this is a long haul fight for our issues, and we’ll continue to stand up for what’s right with our fight-back spirit. It’s the only way we’ll move towards an Iowa that’s truly more just and democratic for everyone.
