The newly launched "Ambassadors for DC Statehood" continue to spread the message of Stand Up! for Democracy in DC (Free DC)!  Launched in August of 2015, these dedicated and committed organizer/activist hit the ground running!  Since the launching, they have distributed thousands of pieces of educational DC Statehood materials (including the "DC Statehood MythBusters" brochure), spoke personally with thousands of DC residents and people from around the country and the world!

Just some of the venues where they educated the public was the 45th Annual Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Conference, the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March (Justice or Else), the National Climate Justice Rally on the Mall, public libraries, senior centers, DC public schools and libraries, ANCs and much more!  They also collected and continue to collect thousands of petition signatures for the DC Statehood or Else Campaign, spearheaded by DC Councilmember Vincent Orange.
