Iowans For D.C. Statehood with Senator Paul Strauss

History is being made in congress in the fight to bring equal representation to over 700,000 fellow Americans.


At an event at Grand View University on March 28, 2019, we heard from Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad, Tamyra Harrison, Founder of Iowans For D.C. Statehood and our very special guest, D.C. Senator Paul Strauss who discussed the struggles D.C. residents face, why this is long overdue and how Iowans can make a difference! For more information email info@iowansfordcstatehood.com

History made with vote on H.R. 1 March 8th!

It's Time To Act! support H.R. 51!

H.R. 51 supporting D.C. Statehood has a record number 201 co-sponsors, including Congressman Dave Loebsack.  We hope all of Iowa's members of the House will join him soon!

About Us

Who Are We?

 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. 

We're Going To Add Another Star!

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.  We plan to keep this a key issue and further grow our support until another star is added to our flag!
