With the new year, comes new challenges. We have a lot of work to do to keep our Western lands protected. We have you covered so that you can fight to keep your elected officials accountable.
Over the past year, Washington tried to halt our strides time and time again. When some members of Congress attempted to take away support from a landmark sage grouse agreement that would protect our western lands and wildlife while supporting responsible energy development and local business, you fought back. Later, when Washington contemplated a win-win compromise that would end the wasteful practice of venting and flaring and use taxpayers’ money to support their communities, your comments and actions saved the day.
Going into 2017, we will need your help again. With an incoming administration that looks like it will have strong ties to the oil and gas industry, public lands are vulnerable. Let’s remind Washington that protecting Western lands should be a priority.
Here are some tools you can use to take action:
Visit the Issues section of our website for up-to-date information on the efforts to protect public lands.
When members of Congress threaten to derail commonsense solutions, we’ll help you take action by giving you a script and contact information to reach your elected official.
We can’t do this without you. Join us as we continue to hold officials accountable for the management of our public lands.
If you haven’t already, take our pledge to stand up for Western lands in 2017.
