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 legacy these monuments represent.
RALLY AGAINST TRUMP’S MONUMENTAL MISTAKE
Saturday, December 2nd, 1:00pm-2:30pm
Utah State Capitol, South Steps
Salt Lake City, Utah
NOTE: If you can’t make the rally, you can still participate by watching the livestream on our Facebook page starting around 1pm MST on Saturday. We also encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and share our posts from the rally!
Bring your #SaveGrandStaircase and #StandWithBearsEars signs and wear your “Protect Bears Ears” and “I Stand with Grand Staircase-Escalante” t-shirts.

Please share this event widely! Bring family and friends! Let’s make a statement by standing together as Utahns and Tribal Nations.
