The D.C. Statehood bill in the U.S. Senate, S. 631, now has set its all-time record for cosponsors with 31 but we need to make sure that list continues to grow. We expect former cosponsor, Senator Feinstein, to cosponsor again soon and we need to redouble our efforts to get new cosponsors on the bill!
The below 10 Senators have NEVER cosponsored the D.C. statehood bill! This Congress we set a goal to get to 40 cosponsors to show the growing support for this cause. We can & we will get to 40 cosponsors with your help & hard work!
If you have family or friends in the below states please ask them to email & call their Senators on our behalf and you should do so as well. It takes 10 minutes to either call or email below Senators. Here’s a script for calls and emails and for tweets you can write “.@SenatorX should stand up for democracy and equality for the 700,000+ Americans living in D.C. by cosponsoring the #DCStatehood bill.”

Together we can continue building congressional and national support for D.C. statehood and together we will create the 51st state!
We won’t give up until they give in!
