DC Veterans Deserve Statehood

Since World War 1, generations of Washingtonians have served in the United States Armed Forces. Of the nearly 200,000 drafted or chosen to enlist in the military during war and peacetime, none have had the right to elect a member of Congress with the power to make decisions about our military involvement.

On this Veterans Day,  we share our gratitude and admiration for those who served. Like all people who live in the District, they deserve the full rights and representation afforded by the Constitution–including those that come with statehood.
