An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Pass H.R. 51 now.

59 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

Congress needs to pass H.R.51 now. D.C statehood would mean full rights to representation for all Americans. Most opposition to the district’s statehood in the past has been in the name of preventing the addition of two more senators. For D.C. which, upon achieving statehood would be the first state with a plurality black population, this opposition translates into the suppression of black voices in our democracy.
