Concert for National Monuments
Start: Saturday, December 02, 2017• 3:00 PM
End: Saturday, December 02, 2017• 8:00 PM
The government wants to slash protections for 10 iconic national monuments and 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. This announcement is likely to come in early December.
These irreplaceable public lands protect our country’s natural and cultural treasures, from California’s Giant Sequoias to the pristine streams of Maine’s Katahdin Woods and Waters. And the vast majority of Americans want them protected. That’s why we’re taking action to show that we won’t stand for this unprecedented attack on our public lands.
The Omaha Concert for National Monuments is presented in solidarity with Utah Dine' Bike'yah, a Native American-led grassroots nonprofit organization working to promote healing of people and the earth through conservation of cultural lands.
Performers (so far) include Michael Murphy, Jay & Linda Banta, Paul Luxon, Toni Allen, Stephen Monroe, Heather Pearson, Joshua Rector, Kyle Knapp and more. There will also be speakers and video presentations.
