In partnership with Indigenous Iowa, Seeding Sovereignty, Sage Sisters, and other grassroots allies, Bold Iowa has assembled a corps of 268 volunteers to persistently and relentlessly bird-dog presidential candidates on the climate crisis.
We push candidates to:
— Make the climate crisis their top priority;
— Support the Green New Deal;
— Oppose oil pipelines, fracking, and other fossil-fuel projects;
— Speak out against the proposed expansion of DAPL;
— Stand with Indigenous Iowans to defend sovereignty, land, and water;
— Oppose the abuse of eminent domain to take farmland for private gain.
Because of the Iowa Caucuses, Iowans are uniquely situated to advance the national debate on climate. We have both the opportunity and an obligation to compel candidates, the media, and voters to prioritize the climate crisis. We’re chronicling our efforts here and letting people across the country know where candidates stand.
Let’s continue to ramp this up! Here are some of our interactions and results:
