Voting matters. Ensuring that every vote counts matters. Over the past two years, a lot has changed about voting rights in Iowa. Attendees will learn about the new Iowa Voter ID law, including updates on ongoing Voter ID lawsuit and voting rights for people with felony convictions. Attendees will also learn about efforts to protect voting rights in Iowa.

Daniel Zeno is policy director at the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa. He is responsible for implementing the ACLU of Iowa’s policy and legislative strategy, including lobbying in the state legislature and working with policymakers at the county and city levels to advance the ACLU’s work. Prior to joining the ACLU of Iowa, Daniel represented Iowans living with low-incomes in civil cases as a staff attorney at Iowa Legal Aid in the Cedar Rapids office. Daniel is a 2009 graduate of the The University of Iowa College of Law.

All you need to do is RSVP by the Tuesday prior to the luncheon as you’ve always done and include the name(s) of the person(s) you’ve invited to attend. Once five people new to Intersections have attended an educational luncheon upon your invitation, we’ll waive your fee for one Intersections (a $10 value)! And another perk: each guest dines at no cost on their first visit! The best part is, we’ll keep track of your guest attendance list for you, so no punch cards to keep track of or tickets to remember! Please feel free to contact Kristin with any questions: 515.279.8715 or gro.a1537479470woiec1537479470naill1537479470ahtia1537479470fretn1537479470i@sno1537479470itces1537479470retni1537479470rc1537479470. Who are you going to invite?

Who should be attending Intersections?
We want Intersections to reach more people in the greater Cedar Rapids area. And, we need your help! Please consider inviting a couple of friends (or more!) to attend Intersections with you. Make sure you give us their names when you make your reservation. Thank you for your help!
