Our National Shared Heritage is at Risk!

A vital tool that has preserved places of great historic and cultural significance has come under threat in recent years. Join us in asking Congress to stand up for the Antiquities Act, to help protect the places that help define us as a nation.

Since 1906, the Antiquities Act has enabled presidents from both parties to save some of America’s most treasured places, from the Statue of Liberty to the Grand Canyon.

Instead of supporting our parks and national monuments as the majority of Americans do, opponents of the Antiquities Act in Congress and the Administration have taken aim at a law that was used to protect nearly half of our national parks, including some of our most cherished, such as Acadia and Chaco Canyon national parks.

We must act today to ensure the power of the Antiquities Act is preserved. Urge your members of Congress to oppose attacks on a law that has a century-old tradition of protecting America’s most important historic, cultural, and natural sites.
