Learn About DC Statehood

We Need DC Statehood Now

People who have chosen to make DC their home pay a heavy price for the privilege of residing in the nation’s capital. Although residents of the District are subject to all the obligations of state residency, like paying federal taxes and serving in the military, none enjoy any of the privileges, such as having congressional representation.

It’s been more than 200 years since the founding of our nation and the only federal representation Washingtonians have is one non-voting delegate to the House of Representatives. Furthermore, laws and the budget passed by the City Council are subject to congressional approval.

Part of our funding comes from grants we receive for our work advocating and advancing DC Statehood.
