Take Action on Public Lands

Sign on urging the Department of Interior and Arizona Senators to reject the appointment of William Perry Pendley as the Acting Director of the Bureau of Land Management

Our public lands are uniquely part of our national identity. Nowhere else in the world do the people have a birthright to such wealth regardless of their social status or their bank accounts. In Arizona, we are blessed with over 30 million acres of public lands that host an amazing diversity of habitats and wildlife. These lands provide a vast array of uses from timber harvest and cattle grazing to countless recreational activities such as camping, hiking, wildlife watching, hunting, and fishing. William Perry Pendley puts these lands and all they provide us at direct risk.

Please complete the online form to email your letters to Secretary David Bernhardt and your Arizona State Senators.


Letter to be sent:

Dear Secretary Bernhardt,

I urge you to remove William Perry Pendley as the Acting Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). He should be replaced with someone who has the experience and vison to run this vital organization in line with the BLM’s mission “to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.” Pendley is completely and obviously unfit to lead the BLM and he must not be allowed to permanently damage what belongs to every American.

Our public lands are uniquely part of our national identity. Nowhere else in the world do the people have a birthright to such wealth regardless of their social status or their bank accounts. In Arizona, we are blessed with over 30 million acres of public lands that host an amazing diversity of habitats and wildlife. These lands provide a vast array of uses from timber harvest and cattle grazing to countless recreational activities such as camping, hiking, wildlife watching, hunting, and fishing. William Perry Pendley puts these lands and all they provide us at direct risk.

Mr. Pendley has a long and hostile history of advocating for the sale and transfer of our federal lands, and his anti-public lands rhetoric is in direct opposition to the BLM’s mission of a balanced approach to land management. In his role as president of the Mountain States Legal Foundation, Pendley repeatedly sued the BLM and attacked it in public comments and books. If Pendley becomes the Director of that same agency, he will be poised to damage and dismantle the BLM from within.

Our public lands provide clean air and water, provide limitless recreational opportunities, support industries, and put food on our tables. These lands belong to all American citizens and deserve to be managed and protected for the American people, not sold off to, or stripped of their resources by, the highest bidders. William Perry Pendley does not share these values and is the wrong person to lead the BLM.

Thank you.
