How your organization can join the effort

We need your support!

State-owned lands are on the auction block. And the fast-track auction law is up for renewal. Pressure from citizen groups started the movement to repeal Outside Section 548. And such pressure needs to continue to ensure that the necessary changes are made. By raising our voices together, we can strengthen our call for the just and wise use of scarce public lands for the benefit of us all.

If you are a member of a public interest organization that is concerned with land use and community rights, give that organization the information on Section 548 and ask them to sign the petition. Have the organization fill our the following form and mail to [email protected]. Please act today!
