DC STATEHOOD "YES WE CAN" COALITION
STAND UP! FOR DEMOCRACY COALITION
Congress wants to put guns on the streets of the District of Columbia, without regulations, even though the people of Washington, DC have voted against it.
"IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE"
Congress tells us how to live and tells us how to die. In a recent D.C. appropriations bill, Congress placed 70 limitations on how D.C. residents could spend our own money, including limits on reproductive freedom, HIV / AIDS counseling & prevention, Domestic Partnership Benefits; and restrictions on medical services. Statehood would change that.
