Join Us at the People’s Climate Rally!
SATURDAY, APRIL 29th in DES MOINES
On Saturday April 29, Iowans from across the state will join together at the People’s Climate Rally in Des Moines, Iowa to stand up for good jobs, environmental justice, and clean energy. Together, we will take a stand to oppose the dismantling of the Clean Power Plan, the expansion of fossil fuels, and the weakening of provisions that support renewable energy, equity, and creation of good jobs.
Though the focus of the event is serious, there will be fun for the entire family. The day will be interspersed with music, great speakers and activities for young and old! We will gather in solidarity with those marching in Washington, D. C. and across the country.
What: The People’s Climate Movement Rally Des Moines, IA
When: Saturday, April 29 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

David Osterberg, from the Iowa Policy Project, will be the emcee for the event. There will be music featuring well know singer and songwriter Dartanya Brown and indigenous drummers. Numerous organizations from around the state will have booths and there will be kids’ activities including kite making and kite flying, art areas, and games.
The Bakken Pipeline Resistance Coalition is proud to be a co-sponsor of the rally and part of the People’s Climate Movement Des Moines — a coalition of thirty organizations, churches, scientists, and more who are joining together to find real solutions to the climate crisis while supporting good jobs, social justice, and clean energy.
We’d love to see you in your water protector and pipeline fighting t-shirts to remind our leaders that it’s time to stop partnering with Big Oil, and instead look to a healthier future!
See you soon,
