Law enforcement is under constant attack from the political Left with calls to “defund” and/or “abolish” the police. Iowans are gathering to show their support for law enforcement on Saturday, June 10 from 10 a.m. until noon in downtown Des Moines.

Laura Loomer will be speaking at the rally. Loomer is a 28-year-old Jewish conservative investigative journalist and activist. Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Loomer began her journalism career working as an undercover journalist for Project Veritas from 2015-17. She ran for Congress last year in Florida District 21 and won the primary. She is planning to run again in 2022. Loomer is a free speech advocate and has been banned from Big Tech social media. She supports law enforcement and understands they are needed to keep our citizens safe!

The event will take place at 25 E 1st Street in front of the police station.
