DC United Brings Attention DC's Unjust Democratic Status With 2016 Jersey, Unprecedented in American Pro Sports
Pro-democracy, national organization, DC Vote, commends club for taking stance on equality for DC
The follow is a statement from Kimberly Perry, Executive Director of DC Vote, on the unveiling of DC United's 2016 jersey.
"We applaud DC United for leveraging their brand's international reach to bring attention to the city's cause for equal democratic rights." said DC Vote Executive Director Kimberly Perry. "DC United has designed a 2016 jersey that includes the District's little-known plight of 'Taxation Without Representation.' This jersey will be sold around the country and indeed around the world. DC United could have easily looked the other way, but they chose to highlight an injustice and make a statement. We are proud to call DC United our partners and our home team."
