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. Follow the Community Legislative Action Team on Facebook for event updates.

This is your chance to hear directly from your legislators and ask questions about education-related issues! These monthly virtual coffees are usually well attended. Join your neighbors and learn more about what’s planned for the session in 2020-21. Check back for our December coffee date.

We kicked off the year with a Listening Campaign in September. If you weren’t able to make the meetings, the PowerPoint slides are available, just click here to access them. We learned more about the DMPS Board’s Legislative Education and Advocacy Committee and the Community Legislative Action Team (CLAT).

Let’s keep the momentum going and continue advocating for DMPS! CLAT hosted a virtual gathering on Saturday, Oct. 24, where members presented the findings of our Listening Sessions, conducted a brief “How to Engage Your Legislator” training and discussed the advocacy calendar for 2021.
