In partnership with Indigenous Iowa, Seeding Sovereignty, Sage Sisters, and Iowa CCI, Bold Iowa is assembling a corps of 250 volunteers who are persistently and relentlessly bird-dogging presidential candidates to make the climate crisis their top campaign priority and:
— Support the Green New Deal;
— Oppose oil pipelines, fracking, and other fossil-fuel projects;
— Stand with Indigenous communities 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 the climate crisis. We have both the opportunity AND an obligation to:
— Compel candidates to prioritize the climate crisis;
— Let voters across the country know where candidates stand;
— Increase national media coverage of the climate crisis; and
— Build public awareness about the need for urgency.
Let’s make this happen! Here are some of our results so far:
Join us now! We’ll provide training, support, data, materials, and other volunteers to work with you. Our first Climate Bird Dog Training Workshop will be Wednesday, April 24, 7:00-9:00 p.m. (more details soon). Your efforts matter! Thank you!
