President Donald Trump has launched an unprecedented attack on America’s national parks, public lands, and oceans. The U.S. Department of the Interior, led by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, is considering eliminating or shrinking at least 27 national monuments established by presidents from both parties since 1996.
National monuments are sites owned by all Americans who honor our nation’s cultural, historical, and outdoor heritage. Places from the Grand Canyon to Bears Ears, the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, and Stonewall have all been protected as national monuments. These places help define who we are as a nation, and any attempt to revoke or change the fabric of national monuments must be stopped.
The Department of the Interior has opened a public comment period for members of the public to weigh in on the protected status of these monuments. With your help, we can demonstrate the overwhelming public support for national monuments.
Submit a comment to the Interior Department telling Secretary Zinke and President Trump that you oppose efforts to eliminate or shrink national monuments.
