National Parks Service Centennial Petition
To mark the 100th anniversary of the National Parks, people of faith called on President Obama to take action so that our National Parks reflect a greater diversity of cultural heritage. See the petition below.
Dear President Obama: On the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, we ask you to spark a cultural shift within public land agencies to emphasize diversity and inclusion. Our public lands—the places where we play, pray, and take Sabbath—need to be a full reflection of the faces of our country, should respect different cultures and histories, and should engage all people. As people of faith committed to justice and caring for God’s creation, we ask you to incorporate these principles in the management of the United State’s public lands.
