Equality for the People in D.C.

SenateStates_110719Statehood for the 700,000 people in D.C. means we would finally have equal congressional representation and autonomy over our own local affairs. We would be treated equally with our families, friends, and neighbors in the 50 states, nothing more and nothing less. The House version of the statehood bill, HR 51, has a historic high of 223 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 35 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.”
