Event description
March with us to the Iowa Events Center to rally the global news media to do a better job covering CLIMATE!

About this Event

Join more than 50 groups - as an individual, family, or organization - to rally the media to cover the cause of so many urgent issues of the 2020 election: CLIMATE!

Des Moines swarms with media every four years during the days leading up to the caucuses. In order to act on the opportunity of national and international coverage, we are hosting a Climate Crisis Parade.

Meet at Cowles Commons to hear influential climate activists make the climate connections the media has been ignoring.

Then we will march through the streets or skywalks (weather dependent) to the Iowa Events Center, with our Iowa Caucus message: “We Challenge YOU …!" - urging the media to do a better job covering climate.

Please note that, because we’re working for the good of the planet and all its inhabitants, we will not welcome those with offensive or violent messages. We also will not include or welcome partisan messaging of any type.

Co-Sponsors: Connect with us to become a co-sponsor! We invite participants to serve on the steering committee, co-host the event, be in the parade, and mobilize supporters and members to attend.
