Our National Wildlife Refuges were created not only to protect wildlife, but to create spaces for all Americans to observe natural splendor. Public lands were created before most western states even existed, and were set aside for the benefit and enjoyment of all, not just for a few. It is more than ironic, then, that a group of “patriots” would occupy public lands supposedly to protect these lands from the government and make them available to the public? Despite the comical nature of the act, is this aggression by domestic terrorists purely a misguided crusade or does it portend more sinister thinking. What do these white men really want (or what are they trying to hide?)
Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead (212-874-5210 x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
