About Environment Washington:
Environment Washington is a nonprofit, environmental advocacy group. We leverage our signature grassroots activism to change policy. Currently, we are working on a campaign to keep uranium mining out of the Grand Canyon. Right now, there is an active uranium mine just 6 miles from the Southern Rim of the Grand Canyon. This could lead to the radioactive contamination of water, soil, and people! Thus, we are urging President Obama to make 1.7 million acres around the Grand Canyon a national monument, permanently protecting one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
