The Black Hills of South Dakota are sacred to the Lakota Nation, supply water to Rapid City and are home to Mt. Rushmore.
Today, gold mining threatens the Black Hills. But the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management are considering withdrawing 20,574 acres of public land from mining exploration. The agencies are taking public comments now. Please let Forest Service know that these lands deserve protection.
Add your name to this petition to the U.S. Forest Service.
Families on the front lines of mining, drilling, and fracking urgently need allies in their fight for environmental justice. Can you help us give them the support they deserve and win the clean energy future all of us so desperately need?
