Now is NOT the time for disunity. It’s the time to cling to each other and change this country for generations to come, a country based on equality and inclusion. That’s the moment we’re in. That’s the moment we’ve got to seize.”
We asked folks in Des Moines why they want clean water. Click on the video to hear what they said!
There are only 3 weeks until Iowa’s Environmental Protection Commission (EPC) decides if they will strengthen the Clean Water Act rule for factory farms.
Help us reach 10,000 signatures by August 19: We won’t let the EPC shut us up or shut us out.
