It’s Presidential Campaign Time in Iowa!

Along with a coalition of progressive organizations, Iowa Citizen Action Network is partnering with Now This News, to put on a series of events with Presidential candidates*.

Our goal is to make sure that family economic issues are front and center in Iowa and during the campaign.

The first event is:

Group discussion with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Monday, February 18th, 2:30 PM (attendees will need to arrive by 1:30 PM)

Cedar Rapids area, exact location to be determined

Each event will feature a Presidential candidate speaking with a small group of Iowans who have been laid off, downsized, or not received adequate paid family leave from their employer.

We are trying to identify about 20 people who fit that description.

Now This will broadcast the events online, and we will help amplify that 

*These events are not in support of any one candidate, and are meant to highlight the important issues facing working families.
