One Iowa City Ride

Monday, May 21, 6-9 p.m.
AJ’s on East Court
419 E Court Ave, Des Moines, IA 50309

We’ve partnered with Des Moines City Ride to bring you this free, slow, and casual bike ride. We’ll meet at AJ’s at 6 p.m. and then ride to the Supreme Court building and Keith Haring’s The Dancing People sculpture before heading back to AJ’s for a karaoke party!

During this ride, One Iowa staff and volunteers will talk about our work, the significance of Iowa’s courts to LGBTQ Iowans, and why art is important.
