Wouldn't it be sweet to ban conversion therapy? Sweet Equality will take place on Thursday, December 12th, 2019 at the Salisbury House and Gardens in Des Moines.

Sweet Equality is an opportunity for parents, educators, organizations, legislators, and corporations to join Iowa Safe Schools in calling for a safer Iowa for LGBTQ youth. Enjoy desserts from local bakeries and your favorite spirits all in the name of charity. Help us continue our fight for LGBTQ youth and our campaign to end conversion therapy in Iowa by bringing you friends and family.
