Tell your senators: REJECT David Bernhardt! CALL NOW

The Senate will soon hold a hearing and vote on ex-lobbyist David Bernhardt’s nomination to lead the Interior Department, and we need you to call your senators and tell them to protect our public lands, national parks, and wildlife by voting AGAINST Bernhardt’s confirmation.

From undermining public land, national park, and wildlife protections to allowing unchecked industrial oil and gas drilling across the United States, nearly every state has been negatively impacted by Bernhardt’s self-serving actions as Acting Secretary.

Will you call your senators and tell them to vote NO on Bernhardt’s confirmation?

Analysis has shown that Bernhardt is the Trump administration’s most conflicted nominee yet, with some 27 former clients and employers who have business before the Interior Department. And his actions have shown that he can’t be trusted to keep the “public” in public lands.

For example, Bernhardt has refused to take a position on protecting America’s second most popular National Park, the Grand Canyon, from uranium mining. Ever since a moratorium on uranium mining was imposed around the park, mining companies have fought unsuccessfully to lift it. But now, their allies in the White House and the Interior Department have given uranium a higher priority for development.

Plus, Bernhardt oversaw the rollback of the largest habitat protections in U.S. history by undermining the 11-state sage-grouse management agreement for his former lobbying clients. Those clients even sent him a thank you letter for his work that benefited their industry!

It’s time to find out who matters more to your senator. Are they working for the families who live in your state, or the special interests who want to destroy our public lands, national parks, and wildlife for their own profit?

Call your senators and demand they protect our public lands, national parks, and wildlife by REJECTING David Bernhardt’s nomination as Interior Secretary >>
