Seven hundred-fifty polluted waterbodies. No collective bargaining. Fewer mental health clinics. Poverty wages. Tax breaks for big corporations while our communities struggle.
Something isn’t working. It’s time to do politics differently.
That’s why I’m inviting you to Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund’s annual convention on July 15 in Des Moines.
Following Trump’s election and the recent attacks on our democracy, millions across the country are mobilizing in ways we haven’t seen before. We’re putting our feet in the street and demanding change. The challenge, though, is building and sustaining this movement long-term.
That’s why groups like CCI Action are so crucial: they’re organized, fearless and committed to a bold vision of Iowa that is just, sustainable and puts people first. We need to join organizations like CCI Action to challenge the establishment and change business-as-usual politics.
Make history with us at our statewide convention and learn how we can build power in Iowa. Featuring movement leaders like Bernie Sanders and #BlackLivesMatter co-founder Alicia Garza, this is an event you won’t want to miss. For more information, call 515-255-0800 or go to www.cciaction.org.
