Our public lands are part of the American identity—they sustain fish and wildlife, and provide outdoor recreation and clean air and water. Your national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and other public lands are under attack. During the past several years, a small group of legislators and land grabbers have been trying to hand your land over to private interests.
Although this issue has historically been contained to the Western United States, make no mistake, it is moving eastward. In fact, in 2015 a group of Tennessee legislators pledged their support for the transfer of public lands to state ownership. And we’ve seen again and again that when lands are transferred to states, they end up being sold into private hands.
The fight is HERE, in our own backyard.
