Most Americans don’t know the residents of our nation’s capital are denied the basic civil right to vote for and elect representatives to the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. We’re here to change that. And hopefully you are too. When enough people learn about this injustice and demand equal rights for all, we all win.
The excuses for allowing this disenfranchisement to continue for over 200 years do not hold up to the constitutional rights that a democratic system of government should promise its citizens. When students in Washington, DC are taught that equal representation applies everywhere else in America except where they live, they know something isn’t right. It’s up to us to do something about it.
We see this as the unfinished business of the civil rights, voting rights, civil and voting rights movements of the last century. If you missed those, here’s your chance to make a difference. Join the DC Voting Rights Project. Let’s Make history.
