The pandemic has not dampened our efforts to reach out to Iowa legislators and encourage them to support and uphold our most fundamental civil liberties.
Please consider getting involved and getting pro tips on how you can make a difference at the Iowa Legislature.
We are hosting four lunch-and-learn sessions as part of our Lobby Day, Every Day series. We invite you to join us for one or more on Wednesdays in March, from noon to 12:30 p.m. via Zoom.
