Our Lands, Our Vote

Protecting our national monuments

Our national parks and monuments are under unprecedented attacks from the Trump administration. First, the administration proposed drastic budget cuts for the Department of the Interior, which manages many of our parks, public lands, and resources. And now, they are “reviewing” all national monuments designated under the Antiquities Act since 1996, paving the way to eliminate designations and protections for these incredible outdoor landscapes and cultural and historical sites.

Wisconsin Conservation Voters, along with state and national partners, is committed to protecting our public lands and waters and launched the Our Lands, Our Vote initiative.

Our national monuments and public lands drive the economy in many communities across the country, and they preserve special places and important histories for future generations. America’s parks and heritage should be protected and celebrated, not sold off to corporate special interests.
