Gwich’in leaders, veterans and scientists will testify before Congress on importance of ANWR – Tuesday Morning live

Thank you for your emails, calls and donations that have inspired congressional champions to make the Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act a priority.

Tomorrow, a panel of Gwich’in leaders, veterans and scientists will testify before Congress about the importance of protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. They will speak about threats facing the Porcupine caribou herd and its importance to a subsistence lifestyle, about protecting delicate polar bear habitat, and about the importance of safeguarding a place wild enough to heal the deepest traumas.

If you’d like to watch the hearing, we’ll post a link to the live stream on our homepageFacebook and Twitter on Tuesday (tomorrow) morning. You can also follow us on Twitter as we live-tweet from the legislative hearing.

As soon as we can, we’ll share the most powerful highlights from this event, made possible with the help of your voices and donations.

Thank you,

Executive Director

#SavetheCleanWaterAct, Dump Trump’s Dirty Water Rule

We need your help, submit public comment by April 15th

The Trump Administration’s proposal to gut the Clean Water Act would seek to redefine Waters of the United States (WOTUS), significantly reducing the number of waterways protected under the Clean Water Act. Trump’s Dirty Water Rule would give free rein to polluters to dump chemicals or animal waste into small streams and wetlands.  This proposed rollback on federal protections would destroy acres of wetlands and push imperiled species like our wild salmon and resident Orca closer to extinction.

Our resolve is strong. Our mission is clear. We’ll fight with all we have to protect clean water for salmon, orca whales, and the health of our communities.

With your help, we will win.

Join the fight to #SaveTheCleanWaterAct.
