Lutheran Day on the Hill - Feb 25th 7am-3pm (FREE)

Join Lutheran Services in Iowa and Lutherans from all across the state for a day on Capitol Hill in Des Moines! On Feb 25th you can jump on the 7 AM bus leaving from the Synod office in Iowa City (other locations: Waverly, Cedar Falls & Newton). This day is essential for giving voice to those who are not heard, for seeking social justice, and for empowering people to exercise their right and responsibility to be part of the legislative process.

This year, we'll be focusing on four key issues facing Iowans:

  • Sustainable Funding for Iowa's Children's Mental Health System
  • Investing in a Strong Human Services Workforce
  • Support for Services that Empower Refugees and Immigrants
  • Why We're Called to Clean Energy Advocacy: Leadership on Climate Action

New this year: LYFT - Lutheran Youth for Transformation.

Youth have a unique and powerful role in faith-centered advocacy work. As engaged citizens, they can help shape the future for Iowa’s public policy and priorities. The L.Y.F.T. initiative is designed to integrate high school and college students into Lutheran Day on the Hill and provide exclusive opportunities to meet with legislators and social justice advocates.
