Climate Crisis Parade - Saturday, February 1st at 12:00 pm
221 Walnut Street, Des Moines, IA (map)
The Iowa Coalition is planning a major climate action before the Caucuses.
Please note: We need a firm number of attendees for the organization chartering the bus by January 3rd.
Over forty organizations have come together to take collective climate action on Saturday, February 1st at noon in Des Moines just before the Iowa Caucuses. If you are interested in attending this event, there will be a bus leaving from Iowa City, early that morning and returning later that same day. It will cost only $12 round trip. We are also considering a local caravan and carpool. Contact Lori McCollum if you are interested.
The Climate Crisis Parade is only two days before the Iowa Caucuses in order to challenge voters and the media to act with urgency on behalf of our climate. This event marks the first time these local, state, and national groups have worked together to spotlight the urgent need for all to act on climate. Participants will gather at Cowles Commons, 221 Walnut Street, in Des Moines and parade to the Iowa Events Center, where media from around the world will assemble to report on the Iowa Caucuses. The action is non-partisan and not organized in support of any presidential candidate. You can learn more about the event by contacting the Steering Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
