“Is This Heaven?” is a fundraiser thrown by a group of Iowan expats, living in New York City, seeking other Iowan expats living in New York City. Heartland Rising is raising money and enthusiasm in the big city, creating a pipeline of resources and talents back to the home state. After two terms that went easily to Obama, Iowa somehow went to Trump in 2016. Iowa was one of the states that went from Obama to Trump in fact, and those states are Heartland Rising's focus. We’re worried and we want to help. So we’re organizing from here, working to support Iowan representative, Shawn Sebastian (who will Skype in and tell us about his work!) working alongside the Working Families Party. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
With comedy from host Patrick Hastie, guest mini-lectures about some surprising progressive history about Iowa from Andrea Jones-Rooy and Michael Salgarolo, Amber Rollo, Myq Kaplan another special guest who is not Iowan will compete in progressive Iowa history trivia, and inspirational oontz-oontz tunes from Adira Amram, we’ll be talking all about Heartland Rising and our desire to help out even though we moved out of there.
We’re going to have an incredibly Iowan time, including some Dry(owa) January cocktails for those of you starting 2020 off booze-less. Do you know what HyVee, taco pizza, Casey’s, scotcheroos, the Hawkeyes and the Cyclones are?? You will! Bring cash for prime Iowa swag...
