2016 Caucus to Convention
The 2016 Iowa Caucuses will be held on February 1st at 7 p.m (please arrive by 6:45). This caucus is going to be a crucial one. This may be one of the most important caucuses we have ever had, where attendees will be casting as straw poll for president. The Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition understands the importance of the 2016 caucuses and because of that, we want to insure that our pro-family values like life, marriage, religious liberty, etc. are elevated and defended.
Why is it crucial for Christians to attend the Iowa caucuses and stand up to defend God’s plan for life and the family?
There are those out there who are working to undermine the values that we all hold dear. They see them as unwinnable issues and want to remove them as values that either party upholds. Bottom line, they want to compromise and conform to the patterns of this world rather than seek His kingdom and His righteousness.
Marriage will be under attack more than it ever has been before. There will be an effort to have both parties in favor of homosexual marriage. If both parties fail to stand for marriage and other pro-family values, it will become extremely difficult for the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition to further these values at the legislative level. Do not sit idly behind this caucus. If you do, you might wake up to a country where no major political party will stand up for our values.
To help prepare you for the Iowa Caucuses, the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition is offering a caucus training video linked below. The training will equip you with everything you need to know before the Iowa Caucuses on February 1st.
It is extremely important for Christian conservatives to show up at the caucuses to protect the freedom-loving, constitutional values we all hold dear. Issues like life and marriage will be under attack this caucus cycle. Therefore, your engagement in the process will be necessary to defend our beliefs.
Resources to Prepare for the Caucuses:
- Caucus training video that addresses questions like:
- Where do I go to caucus?
- What is the caucus process?
- Why is it important for me to attend?
- What happens when I get there?
- Find your voting precinct at the Secretary of State website
- Find where your precinct will meet on caucus night: Iowa Republican or Iowa Democrat Party
- Take platform planks
Below are some platform plank recommendations that you are welcome to use as a template on the night of the caucus. Don’t feel you have to use them word for word. We wanted to equip you, but with any plank you submit, be sure that it is from your own heart. If ours models that, please feel free to use it as your plank. These planks are endorsed by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition: read platform plank recommendations.
