It can be frustrating when you try time and again to talk with elected leaders and don’t get the results you expect. Can you do things differently? Are there better ways to use your voice and be more effective?

This Crossroads will be interactive, informative, and perhaps a little fun. We hope you will join us for this advocacy training to be ready for the 2018 Legislative Session, led by Jamie Burch Elliott (Public Affairs Manager, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland), Morgan Miller (Political Director, AFSCME Iowa), and Connie Ryan (Executive Director, Interfaith Alliance of Iowa).

Please email or call 515.279.8715. If you make a reservation and are unable to attend, payment for your reservation is appreciated if you do not cancel by the Tuesday deadline.

This venue has a hearing loop and those with telecoils may use them.

Crossroads is a monthly gathering of Interfaith Alliance of Iowa. An opportunity to learn, to participate in civil dialogue, and to discuss issues at the crossroads of religion and politics.
