French Frying the Statehouse

We have a special message from member Brenda Brink!

I’m a proud CCI Action citizen lobbyist. You might not know me by name, but you’ve probably seen pictures of me in one of the many costumes I create for actions — like me as a box of French fries.

Right now, I’m really excited that we’ve raised $15,174 in just two days. We’re over half-way to our goal of $25,000!

Haven’t given yet? Click here to donate now!

I truly believe the Statehouse is our house. That’s why I spend so much time there when the legislature is in session. I want to make sure our voice is heard and represented.

I can tell you first hand that your gifts to CCI Action are put to good use at the Statehouse and beyond.

CCI Action provides a much-needed people’s voice at the Statehouse. We’re there to counter the influence of big-money interests like factory farms and payday lenders.

Here’s what your support of CCI Action does:

  • Keeps our citizen lobby team at the Statehouse weekly.
  • Lays the groundwork to build a populist, progressive candidate pipeline in Iowa.
  • Puts our People & Planet First issues, values and vision at the center of the 2016 elections.

Please join me and contribute generously to CCI Action today!

And if you see a lady in a French fry costume, be sure to say hi!

P.S. We reached Adam’s challenge of $3,800 raised yesterday — thank you! No small feat considering our mail wasn’t even delivered yesterday. So, that means Adam had to eat an entire cake…watch here!
