Social Justice Tuesday “Trump’s Dismantling of the National Monuments: Sacrificing Native American Interests on the Alter of Business”
Speaker: Amber Penn-Roco of Galanda Broadman
In December of 2017, President Trump demolished the Bears Ears National Monument, shrinking it by 85%. That same day, President Trump also cut the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument by 46%. The Trump Administration was urged by energy companies to shrink the National Monuments so they could take advantage of the natural resource deposits located within the National Monument areas.
Mrs. Penn-Roco will discuss the creation and dismantling of the National Monuments and address the Trump Administration’s policies which prioritize the promotion of business interest over the preservation of natural resources.
