Protect sacred lands and communities' right to say 'no'

Send your letter now!
They’re at it again. The House Majority scheduled floor votes on the same day for two bills contending to be this year’s worst mining bill.

HR 761, the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act, and HR 687, the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act will be voted on in the House as early as Wednesday!
HR 761 would require less public review and fewer environmental protections for all hardrock mines proposed anywhere in the country!

HR 687 would privatize federally protected lands- sacred to the Apache Tribe- and turn them over to a foreign mining corporation without federal environmental review and public input.

TAKE ACTION: Tell your Member of the House of Representatives to Vote NO on HR 687 and HR 761!
