Right now, nearly 700,000 residents of DC, over 45% of whom are Black, have no voting representation in Congress.
DC Statehood is a racial justice issue, and we can not have representation and equal justice for all without statehood for DC.
Call your senators: Tell them to support statehood for DC!
Here’s what you could say:
"My name is _____ and I live in CITY, STATE. I urge you to support statehood for Washington, DC. It's not fair for nearly 700,000 Americans to be denied voting representation in Congress.
Please do your part for representation and equal justice for all by supporting DC statehood.
Thank you for your time."
