Join us to add your voice in telling Congress: we want to be a state, we want to be equal!
The present political climate demands that this be the largest Lobby Day ever. Members of Congress must loudly hear our Hands Off DC message- now, especially, Hands Off our gun safety laws- as well as our demand for an end to the suppression of our right to full representation through Statehood.
The D.C. Compensated Emancipation Act of 1862 ended slavery in Washington, D.C., freed 3,100 enslaved individuals, reimbursed those who had legally held slaves and offered the newly freed men and women money to emigrate. It is this legislation, and the courage and struggle of those who fought to make it a reality, that Emancipation Day commemorates.
