Statehood Advocates are Loud and Clear: Pass the Washington DC Admissions Act

On the morning that the House Oversight Committee held a hearing on the Washington DC Admission Act, advocates made sure that Congress would hear the people of DC! On March 22nd, equipped with Statehood signs, bull-horns, noise makers, pom poms, and in some cases, coffee, teams dressed in red and white dispersed to every single Ward in DC. At eight busy intersections across the District, drivers honked in enthusiastic agreement, flashed thumbs up. Pedestrians stopped by, joined in, and took home statehood yard signs. Our energy captured a lot of twitter activity and many of the news stories about the hearing included photos of these passionate teams. Thanks to everyone who helped organize these and for showing up for DC!
