Be Heard at the Utah State Capitol!
Be Heard on Bears Ears – Wed. April 20 @ 9am – Utah State Capitol
Bears Ears needs YOU! Join UDB and other Bears Ears supporters at the state capitol in SLC on Wed AM. The UT Legislature’s ‘Commission for the Stewardship of Public Lands’ will be meeting to “discuss issues related to the potential Bears Ears monument designation, and consider adopting a related policy resolution.” The only person on the agenda is San Juan County Commissioner, Rebecca Benally, an opponent of Bears Ears. In Senator Dabakis’ words, UT state reps are trying to “Kill Bears Ears.” THIS IS A CRITICAL MOMENT: we need to demonstrate a massive alliance of support for Bears Ears that the Commission simply cannot ignore. It is time for Native voices to be heard in Utah!
- Wear your Protect Bears Ears t-shirts (available at the Avenues Bistro on Third in SLC).
- Meet in the inside foyer by the main stairs (pictured above). You will not have to go thru security.
- Be prepared to be VOCAL supporters of Bears Ears — the Legislature needs to hear from YOU!
