Preserve Natural Parks and Landmarks With Federal Funding

Target: Bill Cassidy, U.S. Senator for Louisiana

Goal: Support funding for federal land conservation.

After years of environmental conservation being a constant target, national leaders now have an important opportunity to reset the narrative. The Great American Outdoors Act would pump nearly three billion dollars annually into conservation and maintenance of government-owned lands. National parks and other beautiful  landmarks would finally receive some of the support they deserve.

The legislation has remained in limbo for months, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell demanded President Trump’s approval before he would even bring the bill to a vote. Trump, who had previously tried to slash funding for land and water conservation, eventually got on board after senators advocated on behalf of their states and touted the benefits of the proposal. This needed action is still in peril, however, largely due to some lawmakers picking this moment to argue about money they want from offshore drilling.

Sign the petition below to prevent the leader of this opposition from using an anti-environmental issue to derail an essential win for environmental conservation.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Cassidy,

The Great American Outdoors Act should be about one vital issue: not offshore drilling, not greedy profiteering, but environmental conservation. Americans who have spent so much time indoors should have the right to enjoy nature at its best. Lands that have for too long been abused and systemically defunded deserve this infusion of essential support and validation of their worth.

Vote “yes” on the Great American Outdoors Act. Show that you value the natural beauty of this country you represent.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
