Climate Crisis Parade
February 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Join more than 53 organizations – as an individual, family, or organization – to rally the media to cover the CLIMATE CRISIS!
Every four years, Des Moines is “media central” during the days leading up to the Iowa Caucuses. 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 voices make the climate connections the media is ignoring.
March through the streets or skywalks (weather dependent) to the Iowa Events Center, with our Iowa Caucus message: “We Challenge YOU …!” Urge the media to give this global emergency the consistent coverage it deserves, even as we challenge the presidential candidates — and the general public — to prioritize climate action, since our lives and our future literally depend on it!
Because we’re working for the good of the planet and all its inhabitants, we will not welcome those with offensive or violent, messages, and the event will be strictly non-partisan.Facebook Event
