Iowans stand up for National Action on Climate Change in Sioux City

Posted:

Iowans across the state are taking national action to fight climate change. Friday, February 15th, they are delivering letters to Congressional offices in at least 10 cities, including Sioux City. That event is planned for 11:00 a.m. at Senator Harkin's Office in the Federal Building at 320 6th Street.

"After billions of dollars in climate-related disasters just in Iowa, we need Congress to take action this year," said State Senator Rob Hogg of Cedar Rapids, one of the coordinators of this event. "A do-something Congress would do something about climate change. This matters to all Iowans."

For more information, visit the Iowa Climate Advocates website or call Senator Hogg at 319-538-2247.

Nine other cities who are also involved are Dubuque, Davenport, Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Des Moines, Ames, Fort Dodge, and Council Bluffs.

The events are being held in conjunction with the "Forward on Climate" Rally in Washington, DC, on Sunday, February 17.
