Free DC Petition for Equality

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.

Why is this important?

In Washington, DC, our nation's capital, 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.

Reasons for signing

  • When I came to DC (marriage) I lost my full American citizenship. I want it back.
  • The 4 million U.S. citizens that live in the U.S. territories and Washington DC deserve voting representation in Congress. Deny voting representation is Un-American.
  • Please INCLUDE WOMEN EXPLICITLY by updating the old slogan. We are the MAJORITY of the population.
