<<First Name>> -

It has been a very busy two weeks in the Gustafson house. Not only was it back to school for my three kids (Justin, 10th grade; Elsa, 8th grade; Maylin 5th grade) it was back to school for me!

Monday I started classes in my online Master of Arts in Communication, Public Policy and Advocacy degree through Drake University and I am already loving it.

My first class is on Advocacy and Lobbying and I am learning a bunch! I am so excited to see where this degree program will take me.

As we gear up for fall, lots of new opportunities are on the horizon. Read on for some great ways to get involved and support progressive candidates and causes!
New Progress Iowa - Potluck Media Podcast
Last week I had the honor of being on Potluck Media - a brand new podcast from one of my favorite organizations - Progress Iowa. Their goal is to entertain, inform, and inspire their listeners and readers with high quality programming that is honest and authentic.

I spoke about the state of gun laws in Iowa and the US, about the framing of the issue as a mental health problem and the epidemic of suicide that deserves more of our attention.

Endorsement Alert - Theresa Greenfield for US Senate
I am proud to announce that I am supporting Theresa Greenfield for US Senate! 

I first met Theresa when she was running for US Congress in 2018. I have always been impressed with her dedication to bringing people together and find solutions. 

I know Theresa has what it takes to a strong campaign against Joni Ernst and moreover, I know she will make an outstanding US Senator to represent the people of Iowa. 

I am proud to be on Team Greenfield and I encourage you to take a look at her website or attend an event to learn more about her soon!
The Iowa Cubs Become The Iowa Caucuses for a Night
Never one to be left out of the fun, the Iowa Cubs (the Chicago Cubs Farm Team from Des Moines) will have all new uniforms for a special one-night-only appearance as The Iowa Caucuses at their game tomorrow night in Des Moines. (Friday, August 30)

This is the first time that the Iowa Cubs have adopted this adorable little mascot and taken on the name for a game.

Attendees will also be able to register to vote at the game (yay!) and will be able to get information on how to participate in the caucuses.

A HUGE thank you to the Iowa Cubs for bringing a little fun and excitement to the political process here in Iowa!

Get tickets for tomorrow night's game here.

Go Caucuses! 
Thank you for your support and friendship!! I am so proud of the work we are doing to move Iowa and the US toward a more kinder, more progressive and more equitable reality. 

Let's #KeepGoing!!

PS - I almost forgot!! This week I updated and revamped my website! Hop out and take a look. Let me know what you think!!
