Fourteen national and regional faith organizations urged President Biden to designate Avi Kwa Ame as a National Monument and thus honor his November promise to protect this sacred site. The designation would help protect an ecological important area and wildlife corridor as well as provides recreational access for visitors and nearby communities. Most importantly, this designation would protect the sacred lands and spiritual practices of Tribal communities in the area. “Protecting religious liberty and honoring sacred sites demands that this land be permanentely protected as a national monument,” the groups wrote in their letter to President Biden.
