In October 2019, Jane Fonda began what she called "Fire Drill Fridays," which were weekly protests against climate change where she welcomed arrest. In fact, Fonda was planning to be arrested all along, using her celebrity status and her privileges to bring attention to a cause she felt strongly about.
As for why Ted Danson got involved in "Fire Drill Fridays," he shared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that he was inspired by the action she continued to take, even in her 80s. Danson went on to explain that, while he had been involved in a number of climate change initiatives over the last 30 years, it never felt like he was doing enough.
More than two years have passed since Ted Danson and Jane Fonda were arrested together on Capitol Hill, but, when asked about the experience, the actor maintains that he wouldn't change a thing. In fact, since the arrest, he's been open about how happy he is to have taken a stance.
Danson has since gushed to DeGeneres that the arrest only made him want to "double down" on bringing awareness to climate change. He says that if working alongside his mentor to bring about positive change means being arrested, he would do it all again in a heartbeat.
