The D.C. Statehood bill in the U.S. Senate, S. 631, continues to set records for cosponsors, now at 33, but we need to make sure that list continues to grow. In the House the statehood bill has a historic number of cosponsors and there will be a hearing on the bill on July 24! Growing Senate support will help bolster the cause so we need your help today!
The below 9 Senators are NOT presently cosponsoring 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.”
