Swing Into Action for Moving Planet Day, Salt Lake City | 2011-09-24

In September, we joined forces with people across the world, inspired by 350.org to plan an event that would urge their government leaders to “get moving” on climate change.

There were over 2,000 events in 175 different countries. Here in Utah, we sent the message that every level of government should “Swing into Action” on climate change by swing dancing at the State Capitol, the Federal Building, and the City and County Building. We marched between these symbolic government buildings accompanied by a swing dancing band. It was a wild day of flips, twirls, trombones, drums, and activists dancing in the streets.
