On Monday, May 18, Stand Up! for Democracy in DC (Free DC), DC Statehood organizers, elected officials will hold an awards program for the winners of the "Looking for DC Statehood" Contest!
The winners, Girard Bucello IV, Marrisa Geller and Sherry Brown, will be honored from 10 am to 12 noon at the studios of WeAct Radio located at 1918 Martin Luther King Jr Ave SE, Washington, DC (Good Hope Road and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue, SE in Washington, DC. For their great observation skills and obvious support of DC Statehood and full citizenship rights for DC residents, they will be feted at a morning reception and be awarded fantastic prizes.
The contest winners identified Stand Up's "hard-hitting" metro signs which linked the continuing denial of full citizenship to DC residents to the denial of basic civil rights to Blacks in the 1960's. The signs also implored "Support DC Statehood".
The event is free and open to the public!
