Project Description:

In December 2017, President Trump announced rollbacks to protections for two National Monuments in Utah – Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante. One day later, conservation advocates also learned of the administration’s desire to gut protections for the newly expanded Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, which straddles the Oregon/California border. Despite 90% of public comments being in support of protecting the Monument, the Administration is ignoring public sentiment and seeks to roll back protections for this National Monument. Our project seeks to use social media and online engagement to demonstrate widespread public support for the Cascade-Siskiyou to target elected officials and the White House, in hopes of discouraging further proclamations that take away protections for National Monuments.
