A BOLD PATH TO STATEHOOD

Donate to Support the Statehood Initiative.

We are at an exciting and historic juncture in the fight for statehood for the people of Washington, DC. We have a plan to finally achieve the statehood, but we need your help to execute that plan!

Our residents fight for democracy around the world by joining the armed services but lack democracy at home because we have no votes in the House and Senate and are subject to the whims of Congress, which changes our laws. We pay more federal taxes per person than any state and more total federal taxes than 22 states. Two states, Vermont and Wyoming, have smaller populations than the District of Columbia, yet both have full representation in Congress and control over their own local affairs. In fact, the United States is the only nation in the world with a representative, democratic constitution that denies voting representation in the national legislature to citizens of the capital.

At the Emancipation Day Full Democracy Champions Breakfast on April 15, 2016, Mayor Bowser presented A Bold Path to Statehood. As part of the Mayor s Bold Path, the New Columbia Statehood Commission established working groups to advance statehood. This November, Washington, DC residents will be able to cast a vote to show their support to become a state, approve the Constitution, commit to a republican, representative form of government, and agree to the boundaries, which carve out a federal seat of government that includes Capitol Hill, the mall, and the White House. After the vote, the next step is to petition the new President and Congress to pass an Admissions Act.

The New Columbia Statehood Commission, with the working groups, is educating and engaging citizens across the District of Columbia and the entire country to help them understand and support the case for statehood.

To support Mayor Bowser s Bold Path to Statehood and advance the work of the New Columbia Statehood Commission, please donate today to fund this historic initiative and make DC the 51st State. Contributions made to the DC Government may be tax deductible. The amount of the deduction is subject to the same rules as are generally applicable to charitable contributions.

We are Washington, DC the 51st State.
