Last month Tribes discovered that the date for the completion of a crucial environmental review process has suddenly been moved forward by a full year, to December 2020, even as the tribes are struggling with a Covid outbreak that has stifled their ability to respond. If the environmental review is completed before Trump leaves office, the tribes may be unable to stop the mine. Oak Flat needs all of us now to come together. Below are suggested actions and ways you and your communities can organize and get involved to help Save Oak Flat Anything you can do is greatly appreciated.
