    Rally for Great Salt Lake
Jan. 20, 2024, South Capital Steps, 3 pm

    Rally for Great Salt Lake
    Jan. 20, 2024, South Capital Steps, 3 pm

    Join us for a Rally to Save Our Great Salt Lake, on Saturday, January 20th, at 3 pm on the south steps of the Utah State Capitol! Our legislature has taken important steps to protect the lake in recent years, but we need to see bolder action in 2024 to match the urgency and severity of this crisis.

    It’s going to take a groundswell of community pressure to hold our decision-makers accountable, and we need your voice! Show our leaders the breadth of our movement, listen to inspiring speakers, and learn how you can engage with GSL groups to take action for the lake throughout the 2024 legislative session and beyond.

    Speakers will include: Virgil Johnson with the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation; Izzy Khachatryan with the Youth Coalition for Great Salt Lake; Courtney Henley with Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment; Muskan Walia with Utah Youth for Environmental Solutions; Forrest Cuch with the Ute Tribe; Ben Abbott, BYU scientist and Executive Director of Grow the Flow; author and activist Terry Tempest Williams; and lake-facing poet Nan Seymour, as emcee.

    Rally with us on Saturday, January 20th, at 3 pm on the south steps of the Utah State Capitol. (Text credit: GSLA, Great Salt Lake Audubon)
