It is time to put our words into action

"... we call upon ... elected officials... and all people of goodwill to uphold the treaty rights of Native communities of the Northwest.

" We ask that all environmental and cultural harm to Native lands and peoples be considered in.. policy decisions about the mining, transport, and export of coal and other fossil fuels.

" As religious leaders we call for the protection of ... the Earth we all call home...

" We stand in solidarity with our Native neighbors to safeguard the traditional lands, waters, and sacred sites of their peoples from destruction."
