Washington, DC – Today, leading DC Statehood advocacy organization DC Vote announced two additional members to the Board of Directors.

Dr. Derek Musgrove, an Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Dr. Robinson Woodward-Burns, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Howard University, will immediately join the Board to work toward adding the District of Columbia as the Union’s 51st state.

Dr. Derek Musgrove commented, “I am thrilled to join the board of DC Vote. My professional career has been dedicated to the scholarship of traditionally disenfranchised populations of Washington, DC so serving on DC Vote’s board makes perfect sense. It’s time to turn Washington, Douglas Commonwealth from an idea to a reality.”

“I am very excited to join the Board of DC Vote. As a DC native and lifelong Statehood advocate, I look forward to working with DC Vote to secure the rights of District residents,” Dr. Robinson Woodward-Burns finished.
