#GivingTuesdayNow: Protect the Gila River on May 5th

On May 5, protect New Mexico’s last wild river through #GivingTuesdayNow!

At this moment, as the country continues to deal with a global health and economic crisis, GivingTuesday, the groundbreaking global generosity movement, announced #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the enormous need caused by COVID-19.

The day is designed to focus on generosity, citizen engagement, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

#GivingTuesdayNow encourages us to show generosity in a variety of ways. Whether by helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts.

Our work to protect the Gila River is critical now more than ever. Despite our request for a delay due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, the Bureau of Reclamation released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Gila River diversion. We have just 45 days to review and comment on the document.

We need your support to ensure that federal funds under the Arizona Water Settlements Act are directed away from the harmful and costly diversion and instead used to fund priority community water projects that will build a secure water supply for everyone in southwest New Mexico.

On May 5, please join us for #GivingTuesdayNow, because together, we can protect our beloved Gila River!

Thank you for your support!
