Not just another petition: Your signature matters
The majority of Americans want to keep public lands in public hands, but most policymakers have been slow to speak out against the land heist. Some still think they can get away with voting to sell off our American heritage. Until their constituents speak out and express their support for our public lands, policymakers will be reluctant to spend political capital fighting this idea.
Simply put, public lands haven’t been an idea that has needed defending until now. This petition is the first step to show policymakers that voters support our public lands. More importantly, once you've signed, Outdoor Alliance will keep you updated with alerts targeted to your state and district, to make sure you can share your voice when it counts the most.
Millions of Americans visit public lands each year to bike, camp, climb, and explore. We all need places we can go to unwind from the stress of everyday life, reconnect with our families, and recharge. Our stunning National Parks, National Forests, and BLM lands support healthy families, millions of jobs, and a thriving outdoor recreation economy. If state governments seize public lands, we will lose public access, public ownership, and the public process on these distinctly American places. These lands are our shared American inheritance—let's keep them public.
