"Unfortunately, one year ago today (December 4 th ), this healing landscape was dealt a blow when President Trump illegally removed protection from one million acres that the Diné (Navajo), Hopi, Ute, Zuni and other Pueblo peoples work so hard to protect... I invite you, as Americans (global citizens), to stand together, embrace the beauty of our diversity, and create a future that supports us all and the earth.

You can learn more, make a donation, and support our efforts to restore protections at Bears Ears.
