Our Voices, Our Communities
Iowa's Stories of Climate Change
Climate Stories as Advocacy for Change
We created this storytelling project with the goal of sharing local Iowan’s stories about their experiences with climate change so that others, including elected officials and their staff, can see them and understand climate change’s impacts on their communities.
To that end, people from all across Iowa shared their accounts of hope, resilience, and activism and wrote these stories in collaboration with consultants from the Environmental Defense Fund.
We want to give a big thank you to all our contributors for their words, time, and photos, and have special appreciation for Hannah Breckbill and the Humble Hands Harvest Team for providing supplementary photos used throughout the website.
Help us grow our project!
