Our national monuments are in danger from Trump and his fossil fuel cronies, and it’s going to take everything we’ve got to keep these extraordinary sites safe.
Right now, 27 national monuments from the Giant Sequoia National Monument in California to the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument in New Mexico are being reviewed by the Trump administration all could lose their national protections.
The monuments under review are breathtaking places that exhibit the country’s rich cultural history and extraordinary landscape. There’s a reason these areas of the U.S. have been placed under protection. The thought that they could be rolled back or revoked is devastating — to public lands and waters, Indigenous peoples, and local communities. Protections of these national monuments must remain untouched.
Communities across the country are standing up to protect their beloved national monuments — from the Indigenous nations defending cultural sites to tourist towns that would be devastated by a fossil fuel disaster. And hundreds of thousands of people like you have already taken action to join them by showing up to rallies and keeping the pressure on your elected officials… but this is going to be a long, hard fight. Are you in?
P.S. Help stand with communities to protect our climate and keep Trump from carving up our national treasures.
