 (originally release 3/8/15 - updated 3/16/15)
 
During March, passengers using five Metrorail stations will be greeted by standing ads that draw a link between the D.C. Statehood and civil rights movements.The ads were created by the Stand Up! for Democracy in D.C. Coalition (Free D.C.).

 The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) reported average weekly total ridership throughout the Metrorail system at 721,804 in 2014, with surges during special events.

 The ad, with the heading “Support D.C. Statehood...The District of Columbia Thirsts for Statehood,” features two water fountains, one labeled “U.S. Voter” and the other “D.C. Voter,” reminiscent of the “whites only” and “blacks only” fountains of the Jim Crow era. The ad states that even though D.C. residents pay billions in federal taxes, they have no voting representation in Congress, lack control over their local budget and laws, and cannot appoint or elect their local judges.  (Click "Read More" for Complete Article)
