Executive Order is first step towards opening protected lands to Big Oil

We can't let Trump and the Big Oil-controlled Congress sell out our precious natural heritage. Become a monthly donor to help us fight back. We'll send you this Make America Green Again bumper sticker -- FREE! GIVE MONTHLY

Dear Lynne -

Listen up: In a stunning reversal, Trump's appalling new Executive Order calls for a "review" of DECADES of monuments designated under the Antiquities Act. Grand Canyon, Giant Sequoia, Upper Missouri River Breaks... all national parks first protected using the Antiquities Act.

We know what "review" really means: It's the first step towards opening millions of protected acres to drilling by Big Oil billionaires like the Kochs. And we won't stand for it.

It's unequivocally unprecedented. Never in the Antiquities' Act's 111-year history has a president attempted to eliminate a national monument.

We have to work furiously to stop Trump and Big Oil's Congress from turning our public lands over for drilling and clearcutting -- but we can't protect all our precious national monuments without your help right now. Can we count on your emergency gift to the Sierra Club today? Rush your monthly gift to the Sierra Club right now -- help us stop Donald Trump and the Big Oil-controlled Congress from selling out our precious natural heritage to the highest bidder. We'll send you our "Make America Green Again" bumper sticker so you can show your support -- but only if you become a monthly donor today.

Americans owe many of our national monuments -- from Bears Ears to the Stonewall Inn, the only monument to LGBTQ rights -- to grassroots efforts to protect sacred and ecologically fragile sites.

We need your help to stop Trump NOW, before even one of these spectacular monuments is gone forever. Help us stop Trump from undermining the Antiquities Act with your emergency monthly gift now.

Without the Antiquities Act we wouldn't have the Grand Canyon, Acadia or the Grand Tetons. Help us save this landmark legislation from Trump's poison pen today.

With determination,

Michael Brune

Executive Director

Sierra Club

P.S. -- If you've recently become a monthly donor, THANK YOU, we're still processing donations.
