The Other Iowa Caucus Tuesday, January 3rd

Here’s a chance to discuss actual issues.

“Hawkeye Vision 2012: Caucusing for Working Families“
Presented by the Americans for Democratic Action Education Fund.

Please join us for a political roundtable featuring key Democratic leaders who will offer the progressive viewpoint on the important issues facing working families and the role those issues will play in the 2012 elections.

Tuesday, January 3, 2012 (Caucus Day!) at 10 a.m.
Cowles-Kruidenier Auditorium
Iowa State Historical Building

Many voters are interested in participating in issue discussions that do not revolve around the ambitions of individual candidates.  This expert roundtable will focus on jobs, health care, education, and other pressing issues facing our nation’s working families.  Speakers will address how the 99% of Americans can win economic security and social justice in 2012 and beyond.

◦ State Senator Joe Bolkcom (D-IA), Chair of the Progressive States Network
◦ U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (DFL-MN), Co-chair of Congressional Progressive Caucus
◦ Celinda Lake, President of Lake Research Partners & leading political pollster
◦ Ken Sagar, President of the Iowa Federation of Labor

Admission is free.

Reserved seating and other benefits are available to Hosts and Friends.  For a $50 tax-deductible contribution, become a Host and receive reserved VIP seating, a name listing in the event program, and an invitation to a special debrief session with our speakers following the roundtable discussion.  For $25, become a Friend and receive reserved VIP seating and a name listing in the event program.  Host and Friend contributions to the ADA Education Fund’s programs and services will help educate voters and elected officials on key issues and empower tomorrow’s liberal leaders.  All contributions are tax-deductible.
