The following is a SAMPLE letter to use as a template for your letter to the White House to thank President Biden for designating Camp Hale-Continental Divide National Monument, and to encourage him to keep up the momentum to use his authority under the Antiquities Act to protect Avi Kwa Ame, the Castner Range, and other places across the nation as national monuments. Please remember to customize your letter with your own thoughts and experiences. Then be sure to let us know that you’ve written to Congress to express your feelings on this subject!
Dear President Biden,
I join the many veterans, local communities, and conservation groups like Great Old Broads for Wilderness who thank you for designating the Camp Hale-Continental Divide National Monument. Your action honors our veterans and helps ensure that future generations can always enjoy Colorado’s mountains, rivers, and wildlife.
Through the Antiquities Act, you have a unique opportunity to honor the diverse experiences of our nation and permanently protect natural, cultural and historic sites, lands of great scientific value, and ocean waters that contribute to the ongoing and often-untold stories and true history of the United States.
Please continue to heed the calls of local communities by designating Avi Kwa Ame in Nevada, the Castner Range in Texas, the Pacific Remote Islands in the Central Pacific Ocean, Black Wall Street in Oklahoma, and the Site of the Springfield Race Massacre in Illinois as national monuments.
Thank you for your commitment to celebrating and conserving Americans’ connections to the nation’s incredible public lands and waters.
