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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
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. 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!
Your support and contributions will enable us to reach and inform people all over Iowa on this issue and how together we will make statehood for D.C. a reality.
