CLAT Events for 2020-21

Do you want to make your voice heard in support of public education and our schools in Des Moines? Attend any or all of the following events being sponsored by the Community Legislative Action Team:


We know these are unprecedented times. The world is heavy right now. It’s hard to know where to focus and how to stay centered. Our public schools are facing monumental challenges and chronic under-funding will only be made worse by the current situation. Now, more than ever, we need to advocate for Des Moines Public Schools (DMPS).That is why we need you!

Join us for a Zoom conversation to learn more about the DMPS Board’s Legislative Education and Advocacy Committee and the Community Legislative Action Team (CLAT). In addition to learning about us, we want to hear from you. Tell us your story, your experiences with DMPS, and what legislative change you are willing to fight for. Help us strengthen our message to legislators and take action!

Please join us virtually on one of the dates below.  Click on the link to register and receive a link to the meeting.


Get updates from Des Moines-area legislators on education-related issues at our monthly coffees beginning in November. Check back for dates and times.
