Stand With Us for DC Statehood!

For democracy to work for all of us, it must include all of us. It must include those of us living in DC where we are barred from having an equal voice and any representation in Congress simply because of where we live.  

By recognizing DC as a state, we can ensure that the full rights and equal freedoms that every American in the states have also apply to the residents of DC. No person’s zip code, political party, or the color of their skin should prevent them from having a say in decisions that affect our families, our communities, and our country.  

Statehood for Washington, DC is the permanent solution to the centuries-old treatment of the residents of DC, treatment long rooted in racism. By becoming the 51st state, DC will proudly be the state with the largest Black population.   

Never before have the people of DC been so close to winning full rights through Statehood. We must keep the momentum strong. 

We're proud to partner with Bread for the City on this effort!

Guided by its values of dignity, respect, service, and justice, Bread for the City’s (BFC) mission is to empower Washington, D.C. residents living with low income to determine their future and the future of their own communities. Informed by the client community, BFC provides direct services to reduce the burden of poverty while seeking justice through community organizing and public advocacy. All of BFC’s efforts are nested within the framework of uprooting racism, a major cause of poverty. We truly believe the 51st state activation at Broccoli City in partnership with DC Vote is an opportunity for our stakeholders to see how our work is connected. District residents should have full autonomy and choice on what happens in this city

By signing this petition, I declare my support for DC Statehood!
