Our democracy has been under assault for years by powerful special interests who want to buy their way into our government. They have helped elect politicians who put their needs first and then do everything they can to make sure they can’t be held accountable by voters – introducing strict voter ID requirements, gerrymandering districts so it’s nearly impossible for them to lose, and more.

This summer the Trump administration unveiled a proposal to make it easier – a lot easier – to rubberstamp large-scale logging and clear-cuts in our National Forests without any public input.

These changes make it harder for impacted residents to give input on big projects. It would codify climate-denial by allowing the government to ignore the impacts of climate change on wildfires and our communities and put our forests at risk.
