What are we gonna do? #CallCongress!

What are we gonna do? #CallCongress!
When are we gonna do it? Every day!
Here's the number of the U.S. Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121. The operator will connect you with your member of Congress.
After your phone call, please also write Congress here: http://bit.ly/2j82bkr
Specifically, tell your senators and representative that you strongly oppose:
• All legislation that would sell off, transfer or give away America’s federal public lands;
• Any version of a "Sportsmen" Bill that weakens the Wilderness Act by allowing temporary road construction, water developments, or any kind of habitat manipulation or modification in Wildernesses by state or federal agencies;
• Efforts to weaken the Wilderness Act to allow mountain bikes or other mechanical transport in Wilderness;
• Attempts to overturn new regulations adopted by the USFWS and NPS that help protect bears, wolves, coyotes and wolverines in national wildlife refuges, national parks and preserves;
Folks like you have often been the last line of defense standing between America's National Wilderness Preservation System and those who would harm it.
Together, with your help, we’ll continue fighting anti-wilderness and wildlife-destroying proposals in Congress, in order to defend the Wilderness and public lands we all love, especially the North Cascades!

Thank you for taking action!
[Thanks to our friends at Wilderness Watch!]
