A More Inclusive Democracy


There will be a hearing on September 19, on D.C. Statehood bill (HR 51) before the House Oversight Committee. HR 51 has a historic high of 219 cosponsors (and growing) and we expect the bill to pass out of Committee & get a successful floor vote. The statehood bill in the U.S. Senate, S. 631, has a tougher plight. There are now an impressive 33 cosponsors on the bill but we need to make sure to continue to grow that list. 

The below 9 Senators are NOT presently cosponsoring the D.C. statehood bill! They need to hear both from their constituents & the people of D.C. 

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.”

D.C. statehood is one issue that will help make our union more just, equitable, and democratic.
