Free DC Petition for Equality

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Whereas our democracy was founded on the principle of no taxation without representation and is predicated on the concept of equality, we urge you to support equal rights for the people of Washington, DC through statehood.
There are currently 2,148 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

In Washington, DC, our nation's capitol, we have no voting member of Congress, and our local taxes and laws are subject to the control of Congress. This violates every principle of democracy and it is un-American.
