On February 5, 2018 at 7:00 PM, Iowa will caucus once again. Please take this resolution with you to your caucus and submit it during the platform portion of business. It is critical we let Congress know we stand behind our own Congressman Loebsack and the many others in the House and Senate currently sponsoring bills for D.C. Statehood.
Everything you need to know about why D.C. should be made a state in one short video as only John Oliver can.
We are Iowans who endorse and encourage citizens and our members of Congress to support Statehood & full democracy for the District of Columbia that will guarantee to the residents of the District of Columbia full Congressional voting representation, budget autonomy, and all of the rights that the people of the 50 United States enjoy.
First, shadow United States Senator Paul Strauss visited Iowa in February of 2015. Inspired by his words and passion for his cause, in March of 2015, the Polk County Democrats passed a resolution in favor of D.C. Statehood. In 2016, support was passed in platforms at the county, district and finally the state level in Iowa. In the 2017-18 election cycle, we plan to keep this a key issue and further grow our support until another star is added to our flag!
We need to keep the momentum going and we need you to do it. Contact us for volunteer opportunities and help generate support across the state and the country!
