The Arctic Refuge is being threatened by a combination of climate change and development pressures.

Stand with Alaska Natives to protect the Arctic Refuge by signing and sharing this petition. Support by posting on social media at #WeAreTheArctic.
Bears Ears national monument proposal in southeast Utah is an unprecedented, historic proposal being led by five Native American tribes. The proposal would honor historical and current cultural and spiritual riches of surrounding Native American communities, as well as allow tribes to co-manage land with the Department of Interior. Creation Justice Ministries commissioned a poll that showed 71% of Utah voters support the proposal. Creation Justice Ministries is seeking letters of support for the Bears Ears national monument proposal from Native American ministry leaders across the United States. Email Shantha at shantha [at] creationjustice.org to get involved. We also need help creating buzz on social media at #ProtectBearsEarsNow. Sign our petition and learn more about the campaign.
