Phone 2 Action - Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act (Senate)

Uranium mining has left a toxic legacy of radioactive contamination near the Grand Canyon, polluting water, air, and the surrounding environment.

Please urge your senators to support, co-sponsor, and push for a committee hearing for the Grand Canyon Protection Act because:

  • Mining threatens regional groundwater, which feeds seeps and springs inside the Grand Canyon and provides the sole source of water to the Havasupai Tribe.
  • The Grand Canyon region holds only 0.2 percent of identified uranium resources in the United States. This is the wrong place to mine uranium.
  • Uranium mining is not an economic driver in the region, but tourism and outdoor recreation are. Thousands of jobs depend on a healthy Grand Canyon.

Urge your senators to support, co-sponsor, and push for a hearing for S. 387, The Grand Canyon Protection Act.
