Dear Peter,

It's time to rise up and protect the Giant Sequoias. We need you with us to send a powerful signal to the current administration.

It's been nine months since Donald Trump's Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke started his "review" of the Giant Sequoia National Monument -- and he still won't say if the monument, home to 2,000-year-old trees, is in danger from logging and mining.

If we're going to stop Trump and Zinke from selling off our precious public lands to their corporate backers, we need supporters like you to help.

Peter, we know we're stronger together when we work side by side. Can you make an emergency monthly gift of $5 or more now so we can pressure lawmakers and save Giant Sequoia?

The threat to our Giant Sequoias touches every issue Sierra Club members like you care about. It's a biodiversity issue, as the Monument is home to more than 300 animal species and more than 1,300 plant species. It's a public health issue, as Sequoias absorb more greenhouse gases than any other tree species. It's a social justice issue impacting the Tule River Tribe's reservation, directly adjacent to the monument. We need to tackle this together.

Help us pressure lawmakers and save the Giant Sequoia National Monument for future generations and the local communities who depend on its groves for their livelihoods.

We've saved the Sequoias before. In 2000, we leveraged our grassroots power to delivery 600k petitions and successfully convinced President Clinton to establish the national monument.

And together with our many partners, we've stopped the logging industry and the U.S. Department of Agriculture from robbing future generations of the monument's pristine beauty and climate-saving power.

The collective power of Sierra Club members like you is needed once again, Peter. We're engaging our allies in Congress and challenging Trump in court, but if we want to preserve these majestic trees -- and the other monuments on Zinke’s list for "review" -- we need to come together: three million strong and capable of saving our natural heritage before it's gone for good.

Make your monthly gift of $5 or more now.

Thank you for embracing your role as a changemaker and joining with the Sierra Club for our Sequoias again today.

With determination,

Michael Brune
