Africa is the Land of Resources! The realities of migration, human trafficking, slavery, selling organs are all really happening. The causes are clear! Oppressive governments, lack of governments, outdated infrastructure, wars, conflicts, poverty, famine, and lack of opportunities. People are risking their lives migrating for a different way of life to countries that have expected opportunities and rule of law. We as people in the wealthy countries must find ways to rebuild Africa so folks can stop migrating! #Letsbuildafrica#rebuildafrica#nomigration#defendyourland
My heart is breaking. When did this become a part of the Republican party platform? We have never had a good record of honoring treaties, or respecting land sacred to natives. Thank you @patagonia for using your platform for good. #savebearsears#savegrandstaircase#defendyourland

what happened yesterday was a devastating setback. This is the largest elimination of protected land in American history all for corporate greed and the destruction of mother earth. as you know i live and breathe for the outdoors and taking care of the environment, i have played in Bear Ears and Grand Staircase numerous times and the thought of it shrinking millions of acres to be turned into to a battlefield of oil, mining, and an industrial wasteland is heartbreaking. take action now, make your voice heard. stop having our land sell to the highest bidder. even if you don't care about these locations, this is just the beginning of the end. #defendyourland#standwithbearsears#nativeland#standwiththenatives#standwithgrandstaircase#protectourland#optoutside#escape#explore#travel#nature#photonojustice
President Trump announced he is coming to Utah in early December. His stated intent is to eliminate vast portions of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments. He may also act to reduce other monuments around the country at that time.
This action is illegal, unwarranted, and dismisses the more than 2.8 million people that petitioned President Trump to keep our national monuments fully intact. It is also an affront to Native American Tribes.
Join fellow Utahns on December 2nd to resist Trump’s efforts to dismantle our national monuments. Let’s send a clear and visible message that we intend to “Honor Tribes” and defend the priceless scientific, cultural, and ecological legacies these monuments represent.
