Download this Fact Sheet and use it whenever you discuss or study why we should have statehood here in Washington, Banneker City, New Columbia, Potomac or whatever you may want to call our city-state.
Would you like to be part of the movement to win Statehood for the District of Columbia? Become a volunteer in the Stand Up! for Democracy in DC Coalition's Statehood Survey Campaign. You'll ask visitors to the National Mall this summer about their views on Statehood and help dispel myths standing in the way of full citizenship for DC residents.
Join dozens of volunteers working to make DC the 51 st state! The campaign starts in June so sign up now! Volunteer by calling (202) 232-2500 and/or sending an email to "volunteer_at_standupfordemocracy_dot_org" with your contact info and perhaps other interest in ongoing volunteerism. Thanks!
