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.
