WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Wednesday, November 17th, leading DC Statehood organization DC Vote, in company with the efforts of its partners, will walk shoulder-to-shoulder from Black Lives Matter Plaza to the White House in an effort to demonstrate the importance of full representation for all of the residents of Washington, D.C. The “No More Excuses” rally will begin at 10:00 am and there will be citizens risking arrest to bring attention to DC Statehood and voting rights. DC Vote’s Communications Director Patrice Snow released the following statement:

“Yet again, we are out in the streets urging President Biden to act immediately on voting rights. This time, we are asking for specific attention to be paid to the 700,000 disenfranchised residents of Washington, D.C. In order to ensure full democracy for all and to move us toward a better and more secure future, Congress must work to pass and President Biden must sign legislation that will grant voting rights to all of D.C.”
