President Trump: Please Uphold the Integrity of God's Creation on Our Public Lands

For the first time in history, the Trump Administration is considering removing protections for millions of acres of public lands encompassed in national monument areas. This could lead to irreversible damage to Native American sacred sites, wildlife safehavens, and delicate watersheds.

Earlier this year, the Creation Justice community collected public comments and delivered them to the Department of Interior. Our voices united with nearly three million people in the United States who asked Interior Secretary Zinke to uphold protections for our national monuments. On August 24, Secretary Zinke submitted a set of recommendations to the White House recomending shrinking or reducing protections for ten national monuments. The White House and the Department of Interior have not made any further comment. Now is the time to appeal to President Trump to save our national monuments.
