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?

  • Will they vote NO on HF 484/SF 456 (formerly HF 316) to dismantle the Des Moines Water Works?
  • Will you vote against HF 295 the local pre-emption bill that will lower the minimum wage for 100,000 everyday Iowans and gut local control? Will you support a living wage of $15/hr?
  • Will you vote against racist Stand Your Ground provision in the big gun package bill HF 517?
  • Will you reject any attempt to target immigrants in our communities?

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