Grand Canyon

The uranium industry and its political pals want President Trump to open 1 million acres near Grand Canyon National Park to new toxic uranium mining.

The Grand Canyon region already suffers from a deadly legacy of uranium pollution from past mining. New mining would worsen that by industrializing the landscape while threatening endangered species, American Indian sacred sites and aquifers that feed Grand Canyon’s springs.

To avoid those impacts, the Obama administration in 2012 banned new uranium mining across 1 million acres near the park. Now uranium proponents want Trump to lift that ban. The world—and especially Grand Canyon—doesn’t need any more deadly uranium pollution.

Please sign this petition now to demand that President Trump protect the Grand Canyon from uranium mining.
