Urge Congress to step up and protect the Clean Water Act
Tell Sen. Stabenow and Sen. Peters to protect wilderness areas in the Upper Peninsula
Michigan is home to some of the most pristine, stunning wilderness areas in the world, especially in the Upper Peninsula! These wilderness areas are essential to the identity of Michigan, and Michiganders who visit them, but many are unprotected and vulnerable to development, pollution, and degradation.
Over the past three years, Congress has designated new national wilderness areas in several states across the country. By this designation, these areas are protected from threats of development, deforestation and more.
With some of the Upper Peninsula’s most beloved wilderness areas unprotected, now is the time for Michigan to take action to secure its own national wilderness areas – including the Ehlco area, the Trap Hills, Norwich Plains, and the Sturgeon River Gorge – to ensure they are kept pristine and protected for generations to come.
Luckily, Michigan Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters have the ability to introduce legislation to designate new national wilderness areas in the Upper Peninsula! By introducing legislation designating new national wilderness areas, Senator Stabenow can secure a big win for Michigan’s environment, for local communities, and for the creation of new jobs across the Upper Peninsula.
We need your help to ask Sen. Stabenow and Sen. Peters to introduce legislation designating these four areas in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula as federal Wilderness areas.
Send a message to Sen. Stabenow & Sen. Peters: Please introduce legislation to protect wilderness areas in the Upper Peninsula.

Tell your lawmaker: protect drop box voting in Michigan
Senate Bill 286 would require the closure of drop boxes by 5 p.m. on Election Day, reducing voter access and putting even more of a burden on local clerks to accept ballots in their offices without the necessary funding or resources that they need.
Ballot drop boxes are commonly and effectively used across the country, and provide large numbers of Michigan voters with a safe, secure way to vote. Putting restrictions on the use of drop boxes will burden Michigan voters that have used drop boxes for years, especially in rural communities that don’t have updated infrastructure and face geographical barriers to voting.
By contacting your senator and urging them to oppose Senate Bill 286, you can help make it clear that our lawmakers should be working to protect our freedom to vote, not putting up barriers. Take action: contact your senator and tell them to oppose SB 286 today.
