The Iowa CCI / Sunrise Green New Deal Tour Stop in Des Moines was on April 24, 2019. An estimated 450 people and I attended.
One of the next steps listed below is to join us at the Iowa CCI HQ in Des Moines on Thursday, May 16th, (TONIGHT) to strategize on our next steps to build support for the Green New Deal and win our environmental battles here at home. Iowans have unique power to build the future we need, if we unite and get organized:
✔️transform the caucus moment into a movement to demand the #GreenNewDeal
✔️Fight back against attacks against solar in the Iowa State Legislature funded by dark money from Warren Buffet’s Monopoly utility, Mid-American
✔️Join the fight for clean water with rural Iowans across the state trying to protect the health of their families against corporate ag and CAFOs
Following are suggested next steps from Iowa CCI:
- Call/Email your US Congresspeople and tell them to support the Green New Deal! None of our Senators or Representatives have signed on to support this resolution to take concrete action on climate chaos.
- If you live in Des Moines, contact the city council and tell them to support a climate action plan.
- May 3 Climate Strike led by young people at the Iowa Capitol. Here is a link about what happened that day: https://jeffkisling.com/2019/05/03/may-2019-student-climate-strike/
- Join us at the Iowa CCI HQ in Des Moines on Thursday, May 16th, to strategize on our next steps to build support for the Green New Deal!
