Category: News Releases

Today, the Hispanic Access Foundation and the Outdoor Advocacy Project launched an online campaign looking to encourage the signing of this letter urging President Biden to act swiftly to use his authority to protect public lands, waters and ocean health using the Antiquities Act. 


Establishing national monuments through the Antiquities Act has proven to be a key tool for protecting landscapes that benefit cultural resources, unique scientific objects, outdoor recreation and regional economies,” said Katie Boué, founder of Outdoor Advocacy Project. “While we deeply appreciate President Biden taking action to restore protections to Bears Ears and Grand-Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, we also look to the administration to protect more irreplaceable cultural places, public lands, waters and oceans.

“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.”
