Sign the petition: Denounce Trump for slashing national monument protections
In the latest environmental rights violation of his administration, Donald Trump drastically slashed the size of two national monuments in Utah.
Trump shrank Bears Ears National Monument to just 85% of its size — from 1.35 million acres to 228,700 acres. He also shrank the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument nearly in half, from 1.88 million acres to 997,490 acres.
National monuments are treasures of the United States. Trump’s decision to cut back on Bears Ears is blatantly disrespectful of earth and the Indigenous people central to bringing the monument into being.
We need more national monuments protections, not less. Give him a piece of your mind.
