Beyond Roe: Shaken, Not Deterred  

As we face another year without Roe, supporters—like you—continue to be the backbone of Planned Parenthood. Our coalition of supporters, donors, and partners across the state continue to step up and commit to preserve access to safe, legal abortion care.  

Join us to gather in community and demonstrate your support of reproductive freedom. While abortion remains legal in Iowa for now, your support of this year’s Beyond Roe: Shaken, Not Deterred is critical in the fight to defend and expand reproductive freedom in our state.  

This year, we will be coming together in both Des Moines and in Cedar Rapids. Please be sure to select which location you plan to attend. If you would like to attend both events, you will need to purchase multiple tickets.
