The mission of the Zero Hour movement is to center the voices of diverse youth in the conversation around climate and environmental justice. Zero Hour is a youth-led movement creating entry points, training, and resources for new young activists and organizers (and adults who support our vision) wanting to take concrete action around climate change. Together, we are a movement of unstoppable youth organizing to protect our rights and access to the natural resources and a clean, safe, and healthy environment that will ensure a livable future where we not just survive, but flourish.

Landowners who had their property taken by force for the Dakota Access Pipeline have joined with the Iowa Sierra Club in a lawsuit against the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB). They allege the IUB illegally allowed Energy Transfer Partners to use eminent domain to build the Dakota Access Pipeline. Their case is strong and potentially has historic significance.

To raise awareness of the importance of this lawsuit, Bold Iowa and Indigenous Iowa are organizing an eight-day, 90-mile march. Marchers will set out from the IUB’s headquarters in Des Moines on September 1. We’ll parallel the route of the pipeline through Story, Boone and Webster counties and arrive in Fort Dodge on September 8 for an action at the conclusion of the march.

We invite you to march for the whole week or as long as you are able. Go to boldiowa.com to learn more about getting involved with the March, including application, campsites, food and other logistics.

A powerful movement of Indigenous people, frontline communities, immigrants, people of color, people of faith, young people, Californians, and people from across the world are demanding real climate leadership to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

We demand a just, equitable and resilient 100% renewable energy economy that rapidly expands economic opportunity, creates family sustaining jobs, and protects vulnerable communities, workers, and future generations.
