Efforts are underway in Congress to restore permanent protections for Bears Ears National Monument. The U.S. House of Representatives is considering legislation that would expand Bears Ears’ boundaries to encompass the full 1.9 million acres of land identified by local tribes as sacred and significant. The bill would also require federal land managers to rely on tribal expertise in managing the monument’s lands, which hold more than 12,000 years of human history.
This bill can’t pass without your voice! Take action now by urging your US representative to support and pass the Bears Ears Expansion and Respect for Sovereignty Act (H.R.871)! IMPORTANT: Personalizing your letter below will go further in convincing your congressperson to support this bill.
