Everyaction,

Earlier this year the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act to ban deadly uranium mining throughout this precious region.

Senator Kyrsten Sinema then followed suit with a companion bill in the Senate — but Arizona's Senator Martha McSally has remained silent.

Tell Senator McSally that the Grand Canyon Centennial Protect Act deserves support from both of the Grand Canyon State's senators.

Uranium mining has left a horrific legacy in northern Arizona. Pollution from the mines continues to present serious risks to surface water and groundwater that sustains the Grand Canyon's people and wildlife. On the Navajo Nation alone, more than 500 abandoned uranium mines have left communities struggling with health problems, including higher rates of cancer.

That's why in 2012 the Interior secretary placed a 20-year ban on new uranium mining.

Act now to urge Senator McSally to get on board with this new legislation. The treasures of the Grand Canyon are too precious to lose.
