For an eight-day, 85-mile march across Iowa that will set out on April 22nd (Earth Day!) from the Little Creek Camp (1904 Co Hwy F52, Williamsburg, IA), and arrive at the State Capitol in Des Moines on April 29th for the People's Climate Movement Rally.

Marching each day begins at 9:00 a.m. and will conclude each evening with a community meeting in each town. Food, water and logistics like mobile toilets, showers and hauling gear will be handled by Bold, and campsites will be arranged at each stop (more details on overnight camping venues will be added soon)!

Marchers should bring a tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, and any other personal gear they may need for a long walk in a rural setting in the Spring.

In addition to marching, every evening from 5:00 - 8:00 there will be a forum, dinner and music in each overnight town. These community events are as important as marching. As we work to build the strongest possible alliance to push-back against the failed policies of status-quo politicians at both the state and federal level, it’s essential that we take time to listen to each other and embrace our common ground and destiny.

The Climate Justice Unity March provides a unique opportunity to bring many voices together through the dignified, disciplined commitment of marching, and through non-confrontational forums and meals that will build momentum for April 29 and forge new relationships essential to the work we must do going forward.
