Our Voices Iowa Scholarship Request
We know the 2020 election is not just about the names on the ballot; it’s about the issues up for debate, up for a vote, and up for a fight. And we are ready to fight.
That is why Platform and University of Iowa’s Women’s Resource Center are teaming up to make our power heard and make change happen. Now, we’re asking YOU to join us at the Our Voices Iowa Summit.
From April 5 to April 6, young women-identifying, non-binary, gender nonconforming, and femme leaders - along with our allies - are convening first at University of Iowa in Iowa City to mobilize. Throughout Sunday of the Summit, you will learn how (or freshen up) to channel our stories into lobbying power, get the rundown on state-wide policy issues from the leaders on the ground, develop your own policy goals, and build up voter registration and relational organizing skills. THEN on Monday, we will hop on a bus (provided) and you will meet with your state lawmakers to advance those goals.
Join unstoppable young leaders from across the state to make clear that if lawmakers want our votes, they have a duty to advance and protect our rights.
We are committed to making this Summit accessible for all who wish to attend. Please fill out the form below by March 20 so we can work to match you to a sponsor.
