Legislative forums in your district this weekend

Legislative forums in your district this weekend

Throughout the session, usually on Fridays and Saturdays, state legislators hold short meetings (or “coffees”) with constituents in their home districts. This is an important space to engage with your legislator face-to-face, raise up issues important to you, and call on them to stand on the side of the people.

Why go to your local legislative meetings?

We want to be a powerful fight-back force across the state this session. We need to be in front of as many legislators in their home districts, talking with them directly about our top legislative priorities.

What do I ask them?

  • SF 481, An anti-immigrant bill was pushed through last minute with disregard to traditional legislative rules. Tell them Iowa is welcoming and to stand against any legislation that attacks immigrants like SF481..
  • HF 612, A new pollution trading scheme bill has been introduced. It’s no good. Ask if they’ll oppose these measures.

Never done this before? No problem. Click here for tips on talking to your legislators.
