Do you want to show your support for DC Statehood? Do you want to help get signs out to others?
You can do both! Neighbors United for DC Statehood is offering free signs to District residents –and looking for volunteers to help them with distribution.
|REQUEST A SIGN|
Specifically, the organization needs volunteers in Wards 5 and 6 who can either keep signs for people to pick up from their porch or deliver signs in person.
In January, 2021, the District’s non-voting representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC-D) re-introduced the Washington DC Admission Act to the 117th Congress with a record 202 sponsors in the House. The bill has repeatedly stalled in senate.
Events over the last year have drawn additional attention to the movement for DC Statehood. In June, 2020 then-President Donald Trump called federal troops to occupy the District as protest mounted after the death of George Floyd. The violent coup of January 6 illuminated the division of federal and District responsibilities for security in the District for the nation.
Neighbors United for DC Statehood said there is high demand for signs in Wards 5 and 6 and need more volunteers to help distribute them.

Neighbors United for DC Statehood is a group of District citizens who believe that through grassroots community organizing and strategic congressional outreach we can be the foundation and driving force behind the DC Statehood movement. Our strategy is to work neighborhood by neighborhood educating and organizing small groups at a time to build a sustainable movement for statehood. These groups work to recruit their friends and neighbors while also targeting members of Congress for sustained outreach and lobbying focused on statehood.
