Statement on the Restoration of Bears Ears
“There is no reason for President Biden to delay on restoring Bears Ears National Monument and expanding it to 1.9 M acres. The people have already spoken. When Secretary Zinke conducted a public review in 2017, more than 2 million Americans submitted comments with 98% in support of protections. The same year, votes were held in every Navajo Chapter House in Utah during Townhall style meetings (all citizens vote). Once again, 98% of Navajo citizens in Utah voted in favor of protection (Note the Aneth Chapter House did not hold a vote).” – Woody Lee, Executive Director, Utah Diné Bikéyah
