Environmental Advocacy Day

Environmental Advocacy Day banner

Each legislative session presents opportunities to advocate for Iowa’s water, land, and climate. In 2021, IEC staff, advocates, and volunteers will push to for improvements in clean energy policy, water quality, energy efficiency, and more. 

This year we're doing things a little differently! We invite you to join us virtually on February 25 for two engaging events. You'll hear from advocates and legislators, learn how you can get involved, add your voice to our growing coalition, and support this important work.

Iowa State Capitol Cocktail



February 25 | 12 - 3 p.m.

February 25 | 7 - 8:30 p.m.

Individual activists and organizations are encouraged to participate in Environmental Advocacy Day. 

During Advocacy Day, you'll hear from environmental advocates and legislators, have a chance to participate in a free advocacy training session, network with environmental organizations and other Iowans engaged in this work. 

Environmental Advocacy Day will take place on Whova, an online event platform. Detailed instructions will be provided in advance of the program. 

You're invited to join IEC for an engaging online evening of music, cocktails, and advocacy!

You'll start by enjoying live music from an Iowa musician and get firsthand instruction in mixing a unique, IEC themed cocktail from Des Moines' Bubba restaurant (we'll provide everything but the alcohol!).  

As you enjoy your beverage, you'll learn more about IEC’s advocacy work directly hearing from staff and advocates. Finally, you'll be guided in taking action by writing postcards to your representatives. 

Tickets range from $15 to $65. Learn more and RSVP.
