Make the District of Columbia the 51st State

For Immediate Release: June 26, 2020

For far too long, residents of the District of Columbia have been treated as less than full and equal citizens of the United States. DC’s unique status has left these citizens at the mercy of reactionary politicians from hundreds, even thousands, of miles away.

Not only are they denied full representation in Congress, they have watched as Congress has interfered with their own government and budget priorities. This has been especially true when it comes to reproductive health care and reproductive freedom.

The people of DC deserve the same fundamental rights as people in Arkansas or California. It’s disgraceful that they still don’t have them. We stand with the people of DC in their struggle for equality and urge Congress to support statehood today.
