Lutheran Day on the Hill 

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Children, the elderly, people with disabilities and families facing hunger and poverty don't have high-paid lobbyists to deliver their message. They only have you.

You are the most powerful lobbyist for your community, and your voice is important. Elected officials want to hear from you because it helps them understand how public policy affects people in your local area.

Lutheran Day on the Hill gives you the opportunity to share your voice with your legislators at the Iowa State Capitol on critical human services issues. You'll learn more about why your voice matters and how you can make a difference. 

Transportation to Des Moines is available!

We’ll do the driving for you! Complimentary charter buses will leave from Iowa City (stop in Newton) and Waverly (stop in Cedar Falls and Story City). Western Iowa transportation options will be determined with the Western Iowa Synod office once locations of participants are established.

This opportunity is offered at no cost to attendees.

 Registration is open through Sunday, February 19*.

 *To be the best stewards of our resources, we ask if you attended last year's event to wear the shirt you received at that time. If you need a new Lutheran Day on the Hill event t-shirt or are a new participant, please register by February 2. Registrations received after this date are not guaranteed a t-shirt.

If you haven't already, join and share our Facebook event! You'll be able to interact with other advocates, get insider info, and help build excitement for the day. 

This event has been made possible through an ELCA Domestic Hunger Grant. We are proud to be a partner in Lutheran Day on the Hill with the three Iowa Synods of the ELCA.

I can’t attend, but I’d love to give!
