Iowa Democratic Party Announces Liberty and Justice Celebration
Annual event’s name change reflects the strength, diversity, and forward-thinking vision of the Democratic party

DES MOINES — Today, the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) announced the new name of its annual fall event: the Liberty and Justice Celebration. The event, to be held on Friday, November 1 at the Wells Fargo Arena, will be one of the largest in IDP history. The Liberty and Justice Celebration is an opportunity to highlight the strength of the party heading into the 2020 elections, and to celebrate the candidates and campaigns that are organizing to turn Iowa blue in 2020, beginning with the First-In-The-Nation Caucuses on February 3rd. 

“Iowa Democrats have worked tirelessly to put us on the path to victory in 2020, and this celebration will demonstrate just how far our party has come,” said IDP Chair Troy Price. “This event has always been about showcasing the strength of our grassroots connections, honoring our values, and investing in the future of our party. ‘Liberty and Justice’ reflect the pillars of our party’s values and priorities as we continue to build relationships and engage voters to elect Democratic leaders in 2020. With so many candidates criss-crossing the state and putting in the work to organize in our communities, we look forward to keeping the Democratic momentum full-speed to the caucuses and beyond.”

 The IDP convened a special nominating committee to research and propose a new name, and the State Central Committee approved the new name unanimously.
