U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) met with Union Middle School students during their visit to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, July 20, 2022.

Grassley and the students discussed how he began his journey in politics and his recent work in the Senate when they met on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

“I enjoy meeting with young Iowans and encouraging their interest in learning more about how our government works. Citizen involvement is essential to democracy in America, and young people are the key to the strength of our democracy in the future,” Grassley said.

Grassley makes it a priority to meet with Iowa students visiting Washington, D.C. Grassley also routinely visits high schools in Iowa to answer questions about issues from students and faculty. Meetings can be scheduled with Grassley at https://www.grassley.senate.gov/services/request-a-meeting
