President Trump is in Utah today to announce his illegal plans to shrink the sizes of two of Utah's most beautiful and historically and ecologically significant National Monuments to allow for mining and drilling in OUR protected public lands.
I wish I could be there in Utah today to protest his actions. To help directly support the organizations that first pushed for the National Monument status, and that now have to defend it from the illegal actions from a President beholden to the oil and mining industry, I'm offering a special print sale of pictures I made from my recent trip to the area and donating 100% of the profits to the local organizations and their legal defense funds to protect these National Monuments. Beneficiaries include the Native American Rights Fund, Friends of Cedar Mesa, and the Grand Canyon Trust.
Below are three selections from the most recent trip to Utah and the short time I spent exploring Bears Ears. Utah is magical, and one of the most beautiful places in the world. It deserves to be preserved for future generations to experience, not stripped for short-term extraction to benefit a few people reliant on a soon-to-be-obsolete energy industry.
Please consider purchasing art made in the area that will directly help the fight to protect it.
Here are a few of the organizations I have researched and will plan on donating to:
Native American Right Fund
Friends of Cedar Mesa
The Grand Canyon Trust
