Outdoor Advocacy Project and Hispanic Access Foundation Launch Online Campaign Calling on Biden Admin. to Restore Bears Ears, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Northeast Canyon and Seamounts National Monuments

Category: News Releases

Today, the Hispanic Access Foundation and the Outdoor Advocacy Project launched a online campaign and petition calling on President Biden and Interior Secretary Deb Haaland to restore Bears Ears, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Northeast Canyons and Seamounts National Monuments and use their power to protect all public lands.


“It’s long past time for the swift restoration of protections for Bears Ears, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Northeast Canyons and Seamounts National Monuments,” said Katie Boué, founder of Outdoor Advocacy Project. “Our communities and economy cannot afford to lose these irreplaceable national treasures.”

“Numerous sites dot our American landscapes and cities that tell a story about our diverse past – places that embody the architectural, cultural and deep historical roots of our nation,” said Maite Arce, president and CEO at Hispanic Access Foundation. “We must ensure these places are federally protected through the National Registry of Historic Sites, Traditional Cultural Properties, and National Parks and Monuments through the Antiquities Act to ensure future generations can visit and enjoy these amazing sites.”
