Letter: Look forward, not backwards, on national monuments 20.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune

Recently I took seven colleagues who came to Utah for a meeting of the Advisory Council of the National Sexual Violence Resource Center to Moab to hike Delicate Arch. As a group of professionals who work every day to end sexual violence, we noticed that the culture of Arches National Park reflected the values we want to see in the world.
