Take Action to Protect US Cultural Resources

Feb 05, 2020
The Trump administration recently published its long-awaited proposed changes to the regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This statute is crucial for the protection of both environmental and cultural resources impacted by federal undertakings. Should these changes go through, heritage assets will become more vulnerable to damage from federally-supported infrastructure projects.  

We need your help in demonstrating to the administration how widespread the opposition is. Please go to our Take Action portal and click on the "Submit Your NEPA Comments" link. From there, you will be taken to a page containing an editable template letter to the Council on Environmental Quality that outlines the main problems with the proposed changes. You can edit or replace with your own letter. Just fill in your information, click submit, and your comments will be instantly filed with the CEQ. 

Comments are due March 10. Please take a few minutes today to register your opposition to these changes.
