Trump vs. Grand Canyon. Which side are you on?

Trump may do something far worse to the Grand Canyon than build a Trump Tower in it.

According to The Guardian, powerful mining interests and allied officials in Arizona and Utah are urging a receptive Trump administration to lift the Obama-era ban on mining uranium in the area around the Grand Canyon -- a serious threat to the groundwater and anyone who drinks it.

Please sign this petition to Trump and Congress:

Leave the ban on uranium mining in place in the areas around the Grand Canyon, and protect them by designating them a national monument.
