AAUW of Iowa “Candy” Event Readies Caucus-Goers
In preparation for the February 1 Iowa caucuses, AAUW of Iowa Public Policy Co-directors Anne Johnson and Jane Nettleton hosted an online Caucus and Candy share-and-learn event. Participants learned about the history of the Iowa caucus and experienced how the process works from the comfort of their own living rooms!
In-person Caucus and Candy events were also held by the AAUW Algona (IA) and AAUW Palo Alto (IA) branches, where local speakers from both the Democrat and Republican parties offered a joint caucus training. In a fun twist, the “candidates” were candy bars, not people, so no one had to reveal his or her presidential preference.
