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

Des Moines, Iowa

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.
