Protect Alaskans' water and rights! 

With mega projects such as Chuitna coal mine, Pebble mine, and Susitna dam being considered, our governor has written a bill to take the public out of that decision making process. This bill would take away our rights, hand them over to the Department of Natural Resources to make it easier for outside companies to do what they want with our water. 

To protect our voices and make sure we maintain the right to protect our salmon sign the petition to stop the Silencing the Alaskans Act (HB 77).

No on HB77- The Silencing Alaskans Act

Dear [Decision Maker],

As Alaskan residents who depend on strong salmon runs for recreation, food for our families and our livelihoods, we deserve a voice in natural resource decisions that affect these runs.

We ask that the Alaska Department of Natural Resources stop promoting the Silencing Alaskans Act (House Bill 77), a bill that would remove us from important natural resource decisions by eliminating public notice and comment periods as well as taking away water rights that ensure water remains in streams for salmon.

Development projects large and small can impact salmon runs for generations, and Alaskans deserve a strong voice in how these projects are permitted.

This bill is an attack on our ability to protect the wild salmon we depend on and should not be promoted by your agency.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
