Iowans For DC Statehood's Founder, Tamyra Harrison, traveled to D.C. for the historic hearing, beginning with a press conference with other organizations in front of the Capitol!
Later that day Iowans For DC Statehood met with Congresswoman Cindy Axne and secured her co-sponsorship of H.R. 51, leaving us 1 voting member away from passing in the House!
Iowans For DC Statehood again joined other organizations including Sen. Paul Strauss, DC Vote and 51 for 51, speaking at a Young Democrats Happy Hour event the night before the hearing.
No one picture can capture the energy. People filled the hearing room, two overflow rooms and several hundred watched outside on a big screen. For a time, #DCStatehood was trending on Twitter!
We didn't have an appointment and just missed Sen. Ernst, but Drew in Grassley's office made time to talk with us to find out Sen. Grassley's position.
We woke up in DC the morning of the 20th to this news and nothing could have made the trip better! It can now pass a vote in the House!
We need volunteers to help educate across the state on why statehood for D.C. is the right thing to do and now.
We need to keep the candidates talking about DC Statehood and hold them accountable if it is not a priority.
Donate $1, $5 or join our $51 Club. Every little bit helps with materials and our ability to travel across Iowa and build on this momentum leading up to the vote!
