While the nation turns it’s eyes toward the mid-term elections, especially the Senate, we in the District should not lose the momentum from the Senate’s hearing on the statehood bill. Neighbors United for DC Statehood, the DC Statehood Coalition, and others are keeping the pressure on the Senate to build support for the bill this year! You can help in by doing the following:
- Call, email, or Tweet to the Senate offices listed here with a simple ask: Please take a stand for fairness & equality by cosponsoring S. 132, #DCstatehood. Here’s how to contact our key target Senators: Senate Target List
- Join us on November 15th for a DC Statehood Strategy session from 10am-12pm (location TBD)
- Take part in a DC Statehood Senate Lobby Day on November 18th!
There’s something for everybody to do and if we all do one simple thing, collectively our individual voices have great power. Let’s get active for statehood and keep the momentum moving forward.
