Friday night’s protest could be heard before it could be seen.
A heavy bassline preceded the procession of about 50 protesters who used their feet and hips to make a statement in the “Dance Rally for Change” demonstration.
The protest started at the Salt Lake City and County Building where activists wrote ideas for how to spark social change on yellow sticky notes.
They then adhered them to the side of two whiteboards flanking a flatbed trailer filled with speakers and a makeshift DJ booth.
The ideas will be collected and one will be selected for implementation in Salt Lake City, according to We Tsunami founder and CEO David Ezekiel Brooks.
”This is all about manifesting the change we want to see,” Brooks said.
The march, which included families with children and four DJs, made stops at State Street and South Temple, in front of the federal courthouse and the Public Safety Building.
