Volunteers on this team will receive two and half days of training July 10-12 , 2014 to be able to help immigrants decide if they are qualified for the LPR to citizenship or the deferred action for children programs and provide them with information about the documentation they must present for participation in either.

NEXT STEPS: After successful completion of training, this local team will be working together to present workshops to meat packing employees, members of local congregations, and others in our community – to those looking to find out if they qualify for DACA and LPR status and connecting them to local resources to get them on their path .

The frequency of the workshops and the schedule for 2014-15 for staffing each will reflect the number of immigrants needing them.

THE IMPACT OF MONEY ON POLITICS A Panel Discussion on McCutcheon and Citizens United Supreme Court Decisions Moderated by Jim Mertens of WQAD

THE IMPACT OF MONEY ON POLITICS
A Panel Discussion on McCutcheon and Citizens United Supreme Court Decisions Moderated by Jim Mertens of WQAD.

Thursday, MAY 29th 7PM – 9PM
Quad City Coalition for Democracy is holding a forum to discuss how recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign finance are affecting politics in America.
PANELISTS INCLUDE: Christopher M. Whitt – Assistant Professor of Political Science, Augustana College; Ken Sagar, President, Iowa Federation of Labor; Ian Russell, Partner, Lane & Waterman LLP
Sixteen states, including Illinois, have formally demanded that Congress take action to amend the US Constitution to undo the US Supreme Court’s decisions in McCutcheon and Citizens United. Close to 600 towns, villages, cities and counties have also made the ask. During the first weeks of March in New Hampshire, forty-seven town meetings called for a constitutional amendment. In early April, thirteen Wisconsin communities voted overwhelmingly to call on their elected representatives to begin the amendment process. The US Senate will vote this year on a proposed constitutional amendment.
How have these decisions affected politics in our community? Is money the equivalent to free speech? Do corporations and unions have same rights as natural born citizens? These and other questions will be addressed by our panel of speakers. We hope you will join us for what’s sure to be an engaging discussion on the hottest topic of our time: money in politics.
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
