It’s Tax Day across the nation but here in the nation’s capital today is a stark reminder that we’re the unfinished business of the American Revolution. While our nation’s founders fought to end taxation without representation here in the District we still live under such an unjust and undemocratic system so today we’re raising awareness about our status but also asking the the people of the 50 states contact your Senators and ask that they take a stand with and for the 672,000 disenfranchised tax paying Americans in the District of Columbia.
Please contact the following Senators and ask they they add their name to S. 1688, the New Columbia Admission Act (aka the D.C. Statehood bill). Statehood for the people of the District would simply mean that after 230 years we are finally treated fairly & equally with our family and friends in the 50 states.
