Organizing for Action

If you want to know what we value in America, there's an easy way to find an answer: Take a look at what we protect.

Since Teddy Roosevelt signed the Antiquities Act in 1906, sixteen presidents -- eight Republicans and eight Democrats -- have designated over 150 national monuments for all Americans to enjoy and pass along to future generations. Over the years they've included stunning landscapes like the Grand Canyon, and extraordinary places that define who we are as a country, like the Statue of Liberty in New York harbor.

It's a bipartisan legacy that President Obama proudly continued, preserving more lands and waters than any other president in history.

That legacy is under attack today. This administration just placed dozens of these iconic landmarks "under review" -- an unprecedented move that means they could be torn down or sold off on a whim. We simply can't let it happen.

These monuments and public lands set America apart as a nation that preserves our treasures -- and remembers our history. Beyond works of nature, some of these special places, like the Birmingham Civil Rights Monument, Cesar Chavez, and Stonewall, remind us of how far we've come.

But they all share one thing in common: They're irreplaceable parts of our national story. Each national monument adds its own piece to our historical, cultural, and natural heritage -- and now, it's our duty to stand up and defend them.

These aren't just landmarks. They're what we believe in -- the places that say something to us. They're the stories we pass down to our kids, and their kids, so that they too might understand a bit more about where we've been, and what makes our country special.

These are the causes that will define us for generations to come. Stand up today, and we'll make sure this administration knows where you stand:
