Turn Up the Heat for Climate Action

Five years ago on August 9, 2014, the Great March for Climate Action stopped at Ritual Cafe in Des Moines during our 3,100-mile trek across the US. Let’s celebrate that memorable day with music, food and drink, and a presidential candidate straw poll.

*** The event is past, but CHECK OUT THE RESULTS OF THE STRAW POLL and pictures from the event here. ***
