How the Legislature Works + How To Lobby Legislators Training February 18, 2019 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM CT ACLU of Iowa office, 505 5th Ave, Des Moines, IA 50309 We need to hold our elected officials accountable and ensure they protect the civil rights and liberties of all Iowans. Most importantly, they need to hear from people like you — their constituents. When legislators hear from the people who live in their districts it makes the biggest impact. We also need to make sure more people understand the legislative process! When everyday people have access and understanding to these processes, the more comfortable and empowered they feel in those spaces. Snacks will be provided.
