2023 Iowa March for Life

On June 24th, the 1st anniversary of the overturn of Roe v. Wade in the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court Decision, members of the Iowa Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders (of which DCRTL is a member) are joining together to organize a State March for Life at the Iowa State Capitol!! It would be great to have many buses going from the Dubuque area!!

We would like to make it as easy for as many people to attend as possible. The cost to take the bus is $25 per person or $100 per family.

We will depart the Dubuque area by 8 am and arrive in Des Moines around 11:30 am. Please pack a picnic lunch to eat at the Capitol grounds while viewing sponsor tables. There will be time to possibly tour the Iowa Capitol prior to or immediately after the March. Rally will begin at 1pm with the March to immediately follow. We will depart Des Moines and begin our return trip around 3:30.

To sign-up, please contact our office at 563-556-5960 or fill out our online form by clicking here.

The deadline to sign-up is Monday, June 12th.

Community impacting community

Our mission is big – and our hearts are bigger. Through the steadfast dedication of our donors and volunteers, DCRTL continues to champion everyone’s right to life.

Life is ...

Life means so much to so many people. That’s why we encourage fellow pro-lifers to share what their little ones mean to them. Every month we feature different children from our community to help spread the joy that comes from choosing life.
