I AM ESSENTIAL AND SO IS STATEHOOD

ImEssential-2Order Shirts from CafePress!!!

As I wrote in a previous post the Mayor’s move to declare all District Government workers ‘essential’ is not just a reflection on them and their work but it’s a statement about all of us. All District citizens are essential, all District citizens have value, and all District citizens should be treated equally with our neighbors in the 50 states, and the only path to full and permanent equality is as a state. This is an opportune time to tell the nation that we’re tired of being the unfinished business of American democracy and we want full participation in it. Last night, thanks to the nifty design work of CreateDC, we created this T-Shirt for all District citizens, and others who want to stand with us, to wear next week on October 1st as a sign of solidarity with the bold move the Mayor and Council are taking.

Wear this t-shirt to not just stand with our elected leaders but to stand up for ourselves and to stand up for a cause: statehood.

The hard work is still before us but the shirt sends a powerful message. Many thanks!
