Congressman Lowenthal (CA): Western Arctic Champion

David Feinman
|July 24, 2020

“Congressman Alan Lowenthal continues to be a tremendous ally for the Indigenous communities, landscapes and wildlife of the Western Arctic. His amendment to the FY21 Interior appropriations bill, and the support it received from the majority of the House of Representatives today, illustrates their commitment to ensuring Teshekpuk Lake and all of the Special Areas within the Western Arctic are protected from unnecessary and devastating oil and gas exploration.

“While the Trump administration continues ignoring the Indigenous communities of the North Slope and others who care about protecting this critical landscape, we stand with Rep. Lowenthal and other allies who listen to and honor their voices and help to make sure they are reflected in how the land is managed. The existing compromise plan is a reflection of their views, and it must not be manipulated for the interests of the oil and gas industry.”
