Stand with Bears Ears!
Urge Washington to Protect this Priceless Cultural Landscape
President Trump announced his decision to revoke Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah, leaving thousands of extraordinary archaeological sites vulnerable to looting and vandalism.
The president’s action is unlawful and an affront to the Native Americans who draw deep spiritual significance from the landscape and the millions of visitors who come from across the globe each year to experience Utah’s extraordinary beauty. The National Trust for Historic Preservation is challenging this action in court.
As we fight the effort to reduce the monument in court, we are also supporting enhanced protections in Congress. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) has introduced a bill to protect the Bears Ears National Monument by expanding the boundaries to 1.9 million acres, as originally recommended by a coalition of five tribes that proposed the Bears Ears National Monument designation to the Obama administration.
Join us in showing our support for Bears Ears’ 12,000 years of human history by urging your lawmaker to co-sponsor this legislation. We’ve prepared a sample message you may customize to express your commitment to America’s public lands.
Thank you for your unwavering support for the long-term preservation and stewardship of Bears Ears National Monument.
