A Force for Nature

Hold public lands law-breakers and scofflaws accountable

Extremist, anti-government groups calling for—and using—violence are on the rise, threatening more than even the U.S. Capitol and our constitutional democracy. These domestic terrorist groups—many of them with strong ties to white, Christian nationalism—have long and deep roots in communities and regions throughout the American West.

They deny the very existence of America’s federal public lands and basic environmental and wildlife regulations, instead viewing public lands as their own personal fiefdom.

Threats, intimidation, and violence have no place in our democracy or when it comes to the management of federal public lands. Ask the U.S. Department of Interior and U.S. Forest Service to hold these law-breakers and insurrectionists accountable.
