TALKING POINTS
for your letters or opinion pieces:

  • Talk about the importance of public lands to all Americans and mention your experience at Bears Ears. Sharing your personal perspective is imperative. LOCAL VOICES ARE ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT.
  • Discuss your support for the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition’s desire to protect sacred sites and some of the most phenomenal archaeological resources in our country.
  • Mention that you spend money in Utah and know that the monument will continue to be an important economic driver there.
  • Discuss how this is not a partisan issue, as both democratic and republican presidents have designated national monuments for key lands since the Antiquities Act came into law to protect our national treasures in 1906.
