Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) was recently quoted as being open to supporting S. 631, the Senate version of the Washington DC Admission Act, but she needs to hear from DC residents that we support statehood. Landing even ONE Republican supporter would be a HUGE step in securing our full rights of citizenship.
DC Vote is organizing a letter-writing campaign to demonstrate to Senator Murkowski that the 700,000+ residents of DC are serious: We want statehood, and we want it now.
What do you need to do?
- Hand-write or type a letter to Senator Murkowski saying you are for DC Statehood.
- Mail to DC Vote: 1111 14th Street NW, #1000, Washington, DC 20005. Or email your letter as a PDF to [email protected].
- Encourage your friends and neighbors to participate.
