5 PM - Immigration Art Action: Planning Meeting Iowa CCI Action Fund

A bill is moving through the House – SF 481 – that would force local police to act as ICE agents. Immigrant communities and allies have been organizing around this since its arrival last year. Now – we’re calling on activists within the art community to join our fight.

We want to bring organizing and art together. Organizers are pushing Democratic law makers to call for a public hearing on SF 481. This would give us the opportunity to create astonishing visuals that express the story of Iowa immigrants.

Join Iowa CCI Action Fund on Friday, February 9th for a planning meeting to discuss how the artists and the creative community can support the work of organizers in a meaningful way.
