On Saturday, February 8th, at 3pm we’ll have our monthly meeting for Neighbors United for DC Statehood at a private residence in Brookland. Please email Anne Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know if you’ll be in attendance and to get her address.
The meeting this month will cover:
- Legislative Updates: Progress on the statehood bill, a meeting with EHN about statehood, a hearing on DC & the Shutdown, and HR 7.
- Community Outreach Planning: While we will need to postpone our scheduled lobby day for February we need to start planning and recruiting people for a big lobby day on Emancipation Day in April.
- Nationwide Progress: Updates and ideas on how to make our friends and neighbors around the country aware of our status. In particular take a look at Joan Shipps’ piece in the Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/joan-shipps/opposed-to-hr-7-support-dc-statehood_b_4682637.html) and a letter to the editor I got published in Illinois (http://www.sj-r.com/article/20140129/OPINION/140129360/10310/OPINION?template=printart).
- Other topics you so desire to discuss
Please join us to share your energy, ideas, and effort to help make statehood a reality.
