President Obama: appoint environmental champion Rep. Raul Grijalva as our next Secretary of the Interior

To be delivered to President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

As you develop your cabinet for your second term, now is the time to add more progressive leadership to your team. Therefore, we ask you to please select Rep. Raul Grijalva for the post of our next Secretary of the Interior.

As caretaker of our national parks, public lands, and mineral rights on hundreds of millions of acres, the Secretary of the Interior plays a decisive role in many of the nation's most urgent public health and environmental issues. Through his experience serving as the ranking member and former chair of the House Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands, and as the co-chair of the Progressive Caucus, Rep. Grijalva is exactly who we need as Secretary of the Interior: a thoughtful, practical and effective leader, with a deep understanding of conservation and land management issues.

This is why we're proud to stand with 238 conservation, climate, wildlife, faith, outdoors, Latino and Native American associations to ask you to appoint Congressman Raul Grijalva as the 51st Secretary of the Interior.
There are currently 3,636 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!
