We cannot allow the federal government to continue to harm Indigenous communities impacted by the toxic dangers of uranium mining.
President Biden promised voters to invest in environmental justice and clean energy, but uranium mining would undermine both. The Biden administration is moving forward with a Trump-era proposal to establish a nuclear fuel stockpile — otherwise known as a strategic uranium reserve (SUR) — that would encourage more mining and put many frontline Indigenous communities and treasured, sacred places like the Grand Canyon, Bears’ Ears, and the Black Hills at risk from uranium contamination.
Take action and demand the Biden administration prioritize environmental justice, NOT subsidies for uranium companies.
Submit your comments to the Department of Energy and President Biden by October 13.
