Congress: Protect Our National Monuments and Pass the ANTIQUITIES Act!

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Congress is considering legislation that would permanently protect 52 of our national monuments. The America’s Natural Treasures of Immeasurable Quality Unite, Inspire, and Together Improve the Economies of States (ANTIQUITIES) Act would reinstate the original boundaries for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, plus extend protections to 50 more monuments. It would also make clear that while presidents have authority to create monuments, they lack the authority to shrink or eliminate them.

Tell Congress to support and pass the ANTIQUITIES Act and restore protections for Bears Ears, Grand Staircase-Escalante and 50 other national monuments.

IMPORTANT: Personalizing your letter below will go further in convincing your members of Congress to support this bill. To make your message more effective, please share why restoring protections for America's national monuments is important to you. Thank you!
