Even though our public lands are loved by Americans all across the political spectrum, they’re under threat. Now more than ever, extractive industries and money-fueled politicians are trying to strip away protections on large swaths of land throughout the United States.
Patagonia's latest documentary Public Trust dives headfirst into this fight by exploring three heated conflicts in our country: the fight for a national monument in the Utah desert, blocking a mine in the Boundary Waters, and preventing oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Each fight represents what’s at risk and why it’s important to be speaking up. If you want to see our nation’s public lands protected for years to come, be sure to use your voice by voting this November in the general election. Protect Our Winters has a great tool for making a plan to vote, which you can check out here.
