Resistbot Petition: Congress needs to stop meddling in local DC decisions!

An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Congress needs to stop meddling in local DC decisions!

142 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

I am concerned about the numerous measures that have been introduced that will unjustly undermine critical local decisions made by the people of the District of Columbia and their elected leadership. These local laws were enacted to address important local concerns, most notably criminal justice reform, reproductive freedom, democracy, and equal treatment under the law. Efforts by members of Congress to pass disapproval resolutions usurp the prerogative of the District of Columbia’s elected mayor and council and the citizens they represent. I know these measures have already passed in the House, but they must not pass the Senate. I urge you to not prevent local D.C. laws. Thanks!
