Led by students, Iowans of all backgrounds will march together on Saturday at the state capitol and at locations across the state for an end to the epidemic of gun violence in our country. The March for Our Lives in Des Moines is being coordinated by Progress Iowa, Interfaith Alliance of Iowa, and a planning committee of student and community leaders. The Des Moines march is being held in solidarity with marches taking place across the state of Iowa, and at more than 800 locations worldwide.
Iowans have been speaking out, attending forums, town halls, and the capitol in record numbers this year.
