The Special Places We’re Trying To Save

Front-line advocates with the America the Beautiful for All Coalition talk about the special places they are working to save.

Part of a Series

Front-line advocates with the America the Beautiful for All Coalition talk about the special places across the United States and in the territories that they are working to save—and why it’s important to them. From the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument in the Northern Mariana Islands to the marine environment in Puerto Rico, America is full of special places.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone. A full list of supporters is available here. American Progress would like to acknowledge the many generous supporters who make our work possible.

Front-line advocates of the America the Beautiful for All Coalition recently came to Washington, D.C., to meet with elected officials to support a just and equitable implementation of President Joe Biden’s “America the Beautiful” initiative. The Center for American Progress interviewed 10 advocates and asked them: “What special place are you working to save?”; “What does ‘just conservation’ mean to you?”; and “What conservation action do you want President Biden to take?”

Listen to what they had to say.
