Tell Congress to Protect our Public Lands

Don't let Trump sell out our public lands!

After months of secrecy, details of Interior Secretary Zinke's report on national monuments have leaked in the press. Zinke's report recommends that Trump shrink the borders of four national monuments and open six other national monuments to mining, drilling, logging, and commercial fishing.

The seven land monuments and three sea monuments on the chopping block include Utah's Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, New Mexico's Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks and Rio Grande del Norte, Nevada's Gold Butte and Basin and Range, Maine's Katahdin Woods and Waters, Oregon's Cascade Siskiyou, the Pacific Ocean's Rose Atoll and Pacific Remote Islands, and the Atlantic Ocean's Northeast Canyons and Seamounts.

No president has ever shown such disregard for the public's desire to protect our public lands and waters or such blatant pandering to the industries that want to drill, mine, and log them. But Congress can fight back. Trump needs Congressional approval to shrink and dismantle our public lands and waters, and we need to make sure he does not get it.

Tell your members of Congress to commit to protecting our public lands and waters for generations to come.

Protect our public lands and waters
I am appalled by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s recommendation to open our public lands and waters to mining, drilling, logging, and commercial fishing. It’s clear that the Department of the Interior and the Trump administration have a common goal -- auctioning off our public lands and waters to those who put profits before our historical, cultural, and natural heritage. Now, I look to you to do what this administration will not -- to protect our special places for generations to come. For over a century, Congress has played an important role in safeguarding and preserving our lands and waters. This slow motion threat to America’s national parks, public lands, and oceans could undo this work. Please be a leader and stand with the millions of people who have shown their support for protecting our public lands and waters.
