Statehood Activists March with the ACLU-NCA in the D.C. Gay Pride Parade

D.C. statehood activists again marched with the ACLU-NCA on June 9, 2012 in the D.C. Pride Parade and were seranaded by Leonard, Coleman and Blunt's "Stand Up For D.C." For video of the parade and the statehood contingent, go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsJBxYSZ2NM&feature=youtu.be.

The D.C. Pride Parade is of special interest to D.C. statehood advocates as D.C.'s Frank Kameny, a delegate to the 1982 D.C. Statehood Constitutional Convention, a strong voice for DC Statehood and one of our statehood heroes, was a founding father of our ACLU-NCA affiliate and also a nationally estimed advocate for LGBTQ rights.

D.C. Statehood - Yes We Can! joined statehood activists to march in the July 4, 2012 Palisades Parade. Special thanks go to Hector Rodriquez and the National Latino Alliance for D.C. Statehood and our Statehood Senators Paul Strauss and Micahel D. Brown for organizing the participation of statehood activists in the parade!

Fight for D.C. Statehood! E-mail

No where else, but in our nation's capital, do Americans lose their democratic rights merely because of their choice of residence. No where else do American citizens have all the responsibilities of citizenship, but few of the rights.

District citizens pay full federal taxes and serve in the military and die for our country but have no say in whether we go to war, what those taxes are, who serves on our federal courts or in the President's cabinet, or whether the United States should enter into various treaties and international obligations. We can't even spend our own local tax money freely. Congress is implicitly our "state legislature" and does whatever it wants here, even things it would not dare to impose on their constituents back in their home states.
