Save Our National Monuments Week of Action: Dec 2 - 9
Trump wants to slash protections for 10 iconic national monuments and also significantly shrink at least four of them -- Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante in Utah, Gold Butte in Nevada and Cascade Siskiyou in California and Oregon. Trump is expected to make the official announcement next week, so that's why we're taking action.
The Center for Biological Diversity, the Sierra Club and other environmental and Native groups are organizing the Save Our National Monuments Week of Action from December 2-9, 2017 starting with The Rally Against Trump’s Monumental Mistake in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Our goal is to have thousands of people across the country participate in over a hundred actions to defend our national monuments from Trump’s unprecedented attacks and we need you to make this week a success!
The actions don’t have to be big or complicated but we do want to show a powerful nation-wide organizing force of opposition to Trump's expected announcement massively cutting national monuments that week.
Organize an action:
Hold a rally outside a congressional rep’s office to demand that they publicly oppose these egregious attacks and fully support our national monuments in Congress.
Visit a national monument near you, hold a brief demonstration and take photos before enjoying an outing together and sharing on social media.
Hold a demonstration at a federal building, Department of Interior office, etc., to demand that our government put public good before private profit.
Target a Trump golf course or hotel near you. Hold a demonstration outside his property to protest his stealing of our public property for private gain.
