Two years ago, Pascha Morgan walked 1200 miles from Des Moines, Iowa to the Texas/Mexico border — a solo journey he dubbed the March Against Detaining Asylum-seeking Families (or MAD-AF). He writes that the purpose of his walk was “to put words like compassion, empathy, and human dignity into action. Love of others can make you MAD AF.”

Here’s a story about Pascha’s march during his trek through Salina, Kansas.
The climate emergency also motivates Pascha in his work, and he has been very active in Des Moines’ M
ovement for Equality and Equity. The intersectionality between equality, equity, and climate is infused in all aspects of his work. Most recently, he was a panelist responding to the Climate March’s screening of The Race to Save the World.
