Don't Stand on the Sidelines
For nearly 15 years, Republicans have controlled the legislature and Governor's office in Iowa; and what do they have to show for it?
Two-thirds of our counties are losing their populations and quality of life
Public schools are closing and teachers are under attack
Women's reproductive rights are under attack
The rights of workers are being stripped away
Hospitals across the state are closing and losing vital services
Family farms are being run out of business big agriculture conglomerates
Our natural resources are being recklessly polluted or destroyed
Small business owners are given nothing, while out of town mega-companies are given huge tax breaks (even when they don't need them or asked for them)
How much more are Iowans supposed to take? It's time for new leadership; at the statehouse, at the local city halls, on our school board, and in our communities.
But the change Iowa desperately needs will only happen if YOU get involved. That's why we invite you to join the West Des Moines Democrats.
West Des Moines Democrats meet in person every third Saturday from 11:00 am until approximately 1:00 pm.
Our meeting location is Tavern Pizza & Pasta Grill located at 1755 50th St., West Des Moines, IA 50266.
All Democrats are welcome to join us. Our annual membership dues are only $15.
Our goal is to continuously engage, mobilize, and connect young people across races and places to work with progressive campaigns and equip them with the resources, tools, skills, and network to be effective volunteers, organizers, and community leaders.
