H.R. 265 a few weeks ago had no cosponsors and now we have 3 cosponsors: Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Il.), Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA), and Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA). A special thanks goes out to these members for standing up for our civil rights and supporting DC Statehood (New Columbia). We wish we had 217 cosponsors at this point but we’re moving forward with the three we have and more to come soon.
To join the effort to lobby members of Congress to support the admission of New Columbia as the 51st state just shoot me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We need more people writing letters, making phone calls, and attending meetings on the Hill. It’s up to us to teach, organize, and act to ensure our civil rights.
