Hound Politicians About $ in Politics this Election Season at Upcoming AFSC Events

With the Iowa Democratic Party Hall of Fame and Family Leadership summit just around the corner, this is the perfect time to call on politicians to take a stand against money in politics. Are they willing to fight for reform? Or will they simply advance the status quo of unequal influence of big money interests in our political system?

  1. Des Moines at 4211 Grand Avenue tomorrow (July 8th) at 7pm-8:30pm.
