Neighbors United for DC Statehood, the BNCA Statehood Committee, and the DC Statehood Alliance are organizing a lobby day on Capitol Hill from 12:30-5pm on April 16th, 2012. The focus of our day will be to meet with congressional staffers to advocate for members of the House of Representatives to sign on as cosponsors to H.R. 265, the New Columbia Admission Act. Though we already have a good group of volunteers signed up we could use more people so that we can reach more offices. Right now we have several meeting scheduled while other office visits will be drop-ins.
This event is open to anyone who wants to help us advocate for New Columbia to be admitted as the 51st State. On Saturday, April 14th at 10am the BNCA Statehood Committee will be briefing volunteers on the lobby day and we’ll also practice our talking points for those new to lobbying.
