Secretary Zinke: Please Leave Our National Monuments Alone
Huffington Post - 9 months
Today, on behalf of The Trust for Public Land and its many volunteers and supporters, I am registering our concern with President Trump’s executive order to review certain monument designations. Our public lands and waters help define who we are as a nation by telling the story of our historical, cultural, and natural heritage. This attempt to roll back protections for national monuments is unprecedented and terribly misguided. Secretary Zinke, we strongly urge you to reject efforts to eliminate or shrink our national monuments. The Trust for Public Land has worked over many years to protect important conservation lands at several national monuments currently under review and we have worked to ensure public land protection at other recently created monuments including California Coastal, Stonewall, Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers and Pullman. Our experience was always positive, with strong community support and engagement. In California, for example, the impetus for the the Moj...

Carter G. Woodson's Legacy Inspires Us To Greater Achievements
Huffington Post - about 1 year
“Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.” - Carter G. Woodson In February 1926, Carter G. Woodson sent out a press release announcing Negro History Week. It was more than an announcement, it was a declaration of a commitment to sharing the black experience. “We are going back to that beautiful history and it is going to inspire us to greater achievements,” he told an audience of Hampton Institute students. Fifty years later, the Association for the Study of African American Life & History (ASALH), which Woodson founded to create and disseminate knowledge about black history, led the effort to expand one week to one month and evolve the name to Black History Month. Fast forward another 41 years, the National Park Foundation is helping to carry on Woodson’s legacy by raising awareness for the African American experience during Black History Month and throughout the year. ...

When President Obama created the César E. Chávez National Memorial in 2012, the first National Park unit to recognize the work of a contemporary Latino, he unleashed a wave of support for making our parks and public lands more relevant to diverse audiences. Since taking office, President Obama has used his executive authority to add 23 national monuments to our system of protected public lands. Sites designated because of their particular historical or cultural significance include the César Chávez National Monument (CA), Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial (DC), Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument (OH), Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historic Park (MD), Stonewall National Monument (NY), and Honouliuli National Monument (HI). These places tell stories that deserve to be shared with the world. And there are many more, which is why the president is considering designating additional public lands, to better reflect and respect diverse experiences of people...

Strengthening the Connections Between African Americans and National Parks
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
I spoke with Yosemite Park Ranger Shelton Johnson, the head of the grassroots organization "African American Parks Event", Teresa Baker, and the head of the consulting firm, Earthwise Productions, Audrey Peterman, about the efforts being made to strengthen the connection between African Americans and the U.S. National Parks. Since President Ulysses S. Grant signed the first national park, Yellowstone, into law in 1872, the national parks have provided American citizens and visitors from all over the world unique experiences with nature. The arches of Yellowstone National Park at the park entrance displays the Theodore Roosevelt quote, "for the benefit and enjoyment of the people." Despite Roosevelt's rhetoric, the national parks' missions have lacked focus towards African Americans for decades. The first African-American park superintendent, Charles Young, was appointed superintendent of Sequoia National Park in 1903. The next would not be appointed until nearly 70 years late...

Sec. Ken Salazar: Telling the Whole Story of America
The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Two weeks ago, President Obama welcomed Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument into our National Park System. Located in Maryland, the site commemorates a woman -- often referred to as "the Moses of her people" -- who enabled many enslaved people to emancipate themselves and escape to freedom in the North. The new national park joins what is arguably the finest system of parks in the world. With sites from Yellowstone to the Statue of Liberty, our national parks celebrate the natural beauty of our land and the richness of our history and culture. For too long, however, a system that's known as "America's Storyteller" has been missing a few chapters. In establishing Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument, President Obama not only honored a fearless woman but also took another important step to celebrate the history and contributions of all Americans in our parks and other historic sites. When I took office, too few national historic l...

National Parks: Antiquities Act Strengthens Our Best Idea
The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Whether paddling the Potomac River along the boundaries of the C&O Canal National Historical Park with my wife and family, scaling snowy peaks of Mount Rainier National Park, or riding my bicycle to work every day along the National Mall, our national parks are a major ingredient of the places, experiences, and memories that shape my life. With nearly 300 million annual visitors to our National Park System's now 401 sites, our national parks, famously referred to as our country's best idea, continue to get better with age. On March 25, 2013, President Obama designated our 399th, 400th, and 401st national park sites when he used the Antiquities Act to designate the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad in Maryland, First State in Delaware, and Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers in Ohio as National Monuments. Since its passage in 1906, the Antiquities Act has been used by eight Republican Presidents and eight Democratic Presidents to designate national monuments. This important law has al...

Obama Designates Five New National Monuments
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama has designated five new national monuments, using executive authority to protect historic or ecologically significant sites. Vice President Joe Biden and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar joined Obama Monday in the Oval Office as he signed five proclamations designating the sites under the Antiquities Act. The ceremony was closed to reporters. The sites are Rio Grande del Norte National Monument in New Mexico; First State National Monument in Delaware; Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument in Maryland; Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument in Ohio; and San Juan Islands National Monument in Washington state. Biden has long sought the site in Delaware, his home state and the only state without a national park. Designating the 1,100 acre site is the first step toward creating a national park there.

Jamie Williams: Preserving National Treasures
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
With the stroke of a pen, President Obama is expected to protect a national treasure in northern New Mexico, along with four other natural, cultural and historical landmarks. The Wilderness Society has worked for many years to with local partners to protect Rio Grande del Norte in northern New Mexico. The roughly 240,000 acre new national monument is best known for the stunning Rio Grande Gorge and Ute Mountain, which measures over 10,000 feet tall. The area boasts scenic views, serves as a home for wildlife and provides clean water to surrounding and downstream communities. It is also a recreational hotspot for hikers and bikers, rafters and bird watchers, and hunters and anglers. The national monument will also protect the Rio Grande, an important source of water for surrounding communities and a sacred part of northern New Mexico heritage. For years, unlikely friendships, partnerships and bonds have been forged, all in the name of protecting Rio Grande del Norte. ...

Boy Kicked Out For His Genetic Makeup Back In School
Huffington Post - over 5 years
Colman Chadam has been allowed to return to his middle school after officials ordered him to transfer out because of his genetic makeup. The 11-year-old California boy was told last month that he had to transfer from Jordan Middle School in Palo Alto to another one miles away -- because he carries the genetic mutations for cystic fibrosis, a noncontagious but incurable and life-threatening disease. Despite the gene's presence, Colman's parents and doctors have affirmed that he doesn't actually have the disease itself, nor does he exhibit the typical symptoms. Cystic fibrosis is inherited from both parents and while not contagious, can pose a threat if two people with the disease are in close contact. The disease affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 people in the U.S. and 70,000 worldwide. In an effort to protect two other students at the school who do have the disease, officials declared that Colman would have to transfer out to prevent cross contamin...

Boy Kicked Out Of School For His Genetic Makeup
Huffington Post - over 5 years
Colman Chadam, an 11-year-old California boy, has been ordered to transfer from his current school to another one miles away because of his genetic makeup. Now, his parents are taking the issue to court. Colman carries the genetic mutations for cystic fibrosis, a noncontagious but incurable and life-threatening disease. Despite the gene's presence, the Jordan Middle School student in Palo Alto doesn't actually have the disease and doesn't exhibit the typical symptoms of thick mucus that can clog and infect the lungs. Cystic fibrosis is inherited from both parents and while not contagious, can pose a threat if two people with the disease are in close contact. In an effort to protect other students at the school who do have the disease, officials declared that Colman would have to transfer out to prevent cross contamination. "I was sad but at the same time I was mad because I understood that I hadn't done anything wrong," Colman told TODAY. "It feels like I'm being b...
