PROGRESSIVE EVENTS

It’s our mission to list every progressive event in the state of Iowa.

A reliable progressive events calendar is part of the information infrastructure that will rebuild a progressive movement in Iowa. Whether you are an occasional activist, or an organizer – our events calendar can help you plan your involvement and stay informed about what is happening state-wide.  If you do not see your progressive events listed, please contact us and we will post it and/or teach you how to use social media to promote your activities: es@activateiowa.org
