Fight Hate Crime: Demand a DOJ Task Force to Address the Rise in Domestic Hate Crimes

Script: I am writing (https://www.justice.gov/doj/webform/your-message-department-justice ) to urge Attorney General Sessions to support Sens. Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawai‘i) and Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) request to create an interagency task force to address the tragic increase in domestic hate crimes.

The recent outburst of violent racism and domestic terrorist activity by white supremacist organizations and individuals in Charlottesville, Virginia, has made the senators’ call for action even more urgent.

Update on our National Monuments from Sierra Club’s Jim Hines – 8/22

Greetings Public Lands Activists:
 There is a flurry of activity going on at the U.S. Dept of the Interior right now. In the next few days concluding on Thursday (August 24th) we will see Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke make a number of recommendations to the President of the United States regarding the status of the most spectacular natural landscapes in the American west (and one in Maine) as well as 5 marine national monuments in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Most recommendations have been agreed upon, several more are still being discussed by the executive staff at Interior. According to the draft which was circulated among Interior executive staff last week it looks like we are going to lose around 12 national monuments (either completely eliminated or reduced in size).
We are in a epic struggle for the very heart of America, YOUR national parks, national monuments, national marine sanctuaries, national conservation areas, national wildlife refuges and national forests.
