Our National Monuments Are Under Attack!

Last month, President Trump signed an Executive Order directing the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) to review the establishment history and current status of 27 national monuments created since 1996 under the Antiquities Act – a law Congress passed more than a century ago that authorizes the president to designate national monuments on existing federal land. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is currently traveling to a small handful of monuments on the review list and holding public meetings at some of the monuments under review.

Voice your opinion to protect our monuments from being opened up for mining, logging and drilling: http://bit.ly/2q61opJ. DOI is accepting public comments until July 10th.
