Our national monuments are under attack.  Donald Trump is set to issue an executive order TODAY to let the fossil fuel industry destroy these special places. This means that soon, visitors to Grand Staircase-Escalante, Bears Ears and other natural wonders could see, hear and smell coal mines and oil wells. We need your help to stop this attack!

Tell the Senate to step in and stop Trump from destroying our national monuments!

It’s being reported that Trump’s Executive Order will force the review of every monument that’s been protected since 1996. That would put more than 50 national monuments -- more than one billion acres of wild places -- at risk.

Congress can still block these attacks on our natural and cultural heritage. We have a real shot at stopping the destruction of our national monuments -- but we need you to speak up now!

Tell your Senators: Don’t let Trump open Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears to drilling and mining!

Trump’s vision of our environment is clear. He thinks your national monuments are first and foremost meant to help his Big Oil friends.

We can’t let him hand over these places to the fossil fuel industry. We need your help to fight back!

Stop Trump from handing over our national monuments to Big Oil: Write to your Senators now!
