Act Now: Urge Congress to Support Statehood for Washington, DC

Our renewed quest for DC Statehood is off to a good start, but there is still more work to be done. The fight for DC Statehood has to be a collective effort. We must maximize our power in numbers, which includes inviting our family and friends to take action and send letters to Congress in support of voting representation for the residents of Washington, DC. Your action will bring attention to this voting injustice, providing the additional ammunition needed to help us secure a vote in Congress. Our friends and family across the country can work as allies by informing their own Congressional delegation of the injustices facing Washington, DC residents.

If you are a DC resident, please pass along the attached letter to your family and friends for them to send to their Congressional delegation. If you have Congressional representation, please use these sample letters yourself and pass them along to your neighbors to gain their support. Find a sample letter you can send here.

If you are not a DC resident, you can find and message your Congressional Representatives here.
