Environment: Sacred Native lands at Oak Flat in Arizona are under attack.

We’ve sent thousands of messages to the Biden administration urging them to protect the sacred Indigenous site known as Oak Flat. But, earlier this month, a U.S. federal court ruled that the federal government can transfer this ancestral land to a mining corporation that plans to obliterate the sacred site.

While the San Carlos Apache Tribe and Apache Stronghold plan to appeal this ruling all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, there is something we can do to support their efforts right now.

Rep. Raúl Grijalva has introduced the Save Oak Flat from Foreign Mining Act, which would permanently protect the area and honor Tribal sovereignty.

San Carlos Apache Tribe Chairman Terry Rambler said that “obliterating Oak Flat for a copper mine will be a grave human rights violation against Indigenous people and an environmental catastrophe.” So we must act fast.

Please sign now to send a message to your congressional representative: Our sacred land is not for sale! Support the Save Oak Flat from Foreign Mining Act, while we still have time.


Rep. Grijalva’s Save Oak Flat from Foreign Mining Act would repeal a 2014 law, which authorized the land transfer to a multinational mining corporation that has an outrageous history of violating human rights and destroying Indigenous sacred places.

We need to quickly pass the law in order to protect this sacred place and defend our constitutional right to practice our beliefs, as well as our inherent right to self-determination over our lands and waters.
