A courageous stand by Rapkin and others

Cheers to Mitzi Rapkin and her effort to hold Sen. Cory Gardner accountable to the people of our state and his position of support for this dangerous and ignorant Trump administration. It takes courage standing up in a high-profile position for your belief which many of us agree with.

Also to be applauded, Patagonia, Black Diamond, REI, North Face and the Outdoor Industry Association for pulling the Outdoor Retailers Show from Utah for their Republican state leaders’ continued attack on our public lands that belong to all of us.

If you agree with these efforts, please get on board and vote with your dollars and letters of support.
