Native American Tribes,

The Native American Fish and Wildlife Society (Society) is requesting that your tribe submit a Letter of Support for the Recovery of America's Wildlife Act (RAWA) by October 11, 2019. This letter can be sent to the two main sponsors (Fortenberry & Dingell) of the bill. You can also submit letters to your state's Senators and Representatives asking them to sign on as co-sponsors or at least cc them onto your letter of support. Please go to Congress.gov - HR 3742 Recovering America's Wildlife Act of 2019 to see the list of current co-sponsors which is changing daily.

We are asking that you email a copy of your support letters to Garrit Voggesser (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) of the National Wildlife Federation; we want to know who is submitting them so we can continue to contact tribes that might not be getting the information or Julie Thorstenson, Executive Director for the NAFWS (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), if you have any questions or need assistance.
