Great Turn out for Climate Crisis Parade Feb. 1

By Christine Sheller

The Climate Crisis Parade held Saturday noon Feb. 1, organized by Bold Iowa along with cosponsoring organizations (numbering approximately 50) was amazing to see.  Bold Iowa reported approximately 1000 were present.  Unfortunately, there was not a lot of media attention, although there were reporters and photographers present!

The event started as a rally at Capital Square around 12.  Around 12:45 walkers began processing towards the Iowa Events Center.  The signs and floats were invigorating!  There was a finale of speakers there as well.

Below are pictures taken there.
