Project Description:

There is a war being waged in Trinity County against wilderness, wild and scenic rivers, and public lands in general by far-right elements who are packing public meetings, submitting a stream of letters-to-the-editor and otherwise dominating the public discourse over public land management in the region. Trinity County-based SAFE proposes to fight back by printing a special insert for the Trinity Journal (the only local newspaper) extolling the value of public lands and by recruiting 800 people to sign a community letter in support of public lands. That represents 10% of Trinity County’s population. This would send a powerful statement about public support for local public lands.
