Plug into the PEOPLE & PLANET FIRST movement and push for the Iowa WE want to see! 

  • Sat, Jan 6 – Farming and Environment Forum with Cathy Glasson for Governor, 2 pm- 3:30 pm, Des Moines, Jacobsen Exhibition Center, Iowa State Fairgrounds.

  • Sat, Jan 20 – Women’s March 2018, 12 – 2 pm. On the anniversary weekend of the historic 2017 Women’s March worldwide, everyone is invited back to the Iowa State Capitol.
