By RACHEL MCCARTHY Land and water are what make us human.
But that freedom can’t come at the expense of our freedom to grow, develop and produce food.
That’s why we’ve always fought for land.
And that’s why the Land Pride movement is about protecting and protecting our land, our resources and our right to food.
Land pride is about the right to create food, water, clean air and natural beauty in the wild places of our planet.
It is about ensuring that our land is protected for all to enjoy.
That includes the right for the U.S. and all of our neighbors to use and protect it.
It includes the freedom to build on it, to share it, and to harvest it.
Land pride is the pride of the American people.
Land Pride is a grassroots movement, built on the principles of democracy and equality.
It has taken on a life of its own as a social movement in many different ways, and we are proud of our history of fighting for equality.
In 2018, we hosted a Women’s March on Washington, a march to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue.
In 2020, we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the first land-based, air-powered aircraft, the Model B. In 2021, we marched on the White House, and in 2022, we organized a People’s Climate March in Washington, D.C. These were the first steps of a new era for our country.
We know that we can’t continue to ignore the human and environmental impacts of our country’s current economic and political crises.
We can’t let them continue to be ignored.
That is why, as we look ahead to the 21st century, we are committed to defending and defending the rights of all of the people of this land, and the people we love.
As we work to preserve our land and our resources for future generations, we must protect our democracy from the assault of corporate greed, and defend the rights and livelihoods of those who share our land.
We will not rest until we secure the land, water and air we need, and those who care about them.
That means building a bold and ambitious plan to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure, and investing in clean energy, clean energy jobs, and fair pay.
We will not stop fighting for our future unless we are willing to face up to our past and make real, historic changes.
And we will not let our past become the excuse to continue living in a world of fear, and despair.
We have fought for our rights and our rights as citizens, for our freedom, for the freedom of every one of us to make choices about our lives.
We are committed today to reclaiming our land from corporations and the fossil fuel industry.
We have a responsibility to work together to fight the forces that threaten the very fabric of our democracy.
And while we must fight to keep our climate change-fighting goals, we have an obligation to ensure that our economy, our health, our environment, and our planet are safe and healthy for all of us.
And when we take on climate change, we can do so without losing the people who are the foundation of this great country.
In many ways, the land is the heart of the United States, and so is our economy.
We depend on the land to thrive, and it depends on the people and the land for everything else.
That commitment is the foundation for the Land and Water Protection Act, a bill that provides a $15 minimum wage for all workers.
We must make our country stronger, healthier and more livable for all.
We cannot do this without the land.
