Call on the Biden-Harris Administration to Take Urgent Action for the Amazon!

As detailed in our most recent report, Complicity in Destruction III, every day soybeans, meat, minerals, and other commodities from deforested lands in the Brazilian Amazon are shipped to the United States. This year, deforestation there reached a 12-year high, driven by criminal arson and encouraged by government policy.

Now that the electoral college has certified its victory, the incoming Biden-Harris administration has the opportunity to advance ambitious climate action policies that protect the Amazon rainforest.

Insist that Biden and Harris prioritize the protection of the Amazon rainforest and Indigenous rights in their climate emergency plans!

Preserving the Amazon is essential to safeguard the future of our planet. We call on your administration to advance proactive policies to regulate U.S.-based investors that are financing Amazon destruction, prioritize Indigenous rights, and protect threatened environmental defenders.
