D.C. Statehood Teach In and Concert Tour E-mail

The D.C. Statehood Teach In and Concert Tour began May 17, 2012 with a panel on how to work with Congress on enacting a statehood bill and presentations by statehood activists on why D.C. should be a state and what it will take to achieve it.  Elinor Hart of D.C. Statehood - Yes We Can gave an update on the effort to get more co-sponsors for H.R. 265, the New Columbia Admission Act.  June 4, 2012 will be the next major lobby day.  If you want to help, please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Elinor Hart of D.C. Statehood - Yes We Can!

Mr. Black History, Chuck Hicks

Johnny Barnes wrapping up the D.C. statehood Teach In

That evening, statehood supporters were treated to a fabulous concert by the Porch Pickers Brigade, Ayanna Gregory and Leonard, Coleman and Blunt. Noted comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory, father of Ayanna Gregory, made a special appearance. Glenn Leonard, Joe Coleman and Joe Blunt are D.C. natives and former lead singers with The Temptations, The Platters, and the Drifters, respectively. The concert ended with a rousing rendition by Leonard, Coleman and Blunt, along with Ayanna Gregory, of their statehood anthem "Stand Up for D.C.!"  To hear an excerpt, go to: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/stand-up-4-d-c-single/id493572134.

 
Chuck Brown, Statehood Advocate E-mail
Chuck Brown, D.C.'s Godfather of Go-Go, died May 16, 2012.  He was also a strong advocate for statehood and often contributed his time and talent to the cause.  Above is a photograph of Chuck playing for D.C. statehood at the ACLU-NCA D.C. Statethood Teach In at the Capitol on June 10, 2011.  We will greatly miss him, his passion, and his music. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVbTkXbPtbI&feature=related to hear what Chuck played.
 
Congress and D.C. "Budget Autonomy" E-mail

Roll Call reporter Emma Dumain analyzed the possible tradeoffs the District of Columbia would have to make to get Congress to pass a bill giving it control over its own local budget ("Budget autonomy").  She concludes that Congress's price for D.C. budget autonomy  will most likely be a ban on local funding of abortions in D.C.

Read this article to understand why statehood is really the only real answer to the Disdtrict's lack of the same right to self-government that all other Americans enjoy. Even the so-called "budget autonomy" is another form of colonialism, subject to Congressional limitation and revocation at any time.

On February 28, 2012, the Prince George's County Council approved a resolution supporting statehood for the District of Columbia.  It is gratifying to District of Columbia residents that their neighbors in Maryland support full self-government for the 618,000 residents of the District.  The resolution was introduced by Council Vice Chairman Eric Olson and Council members Harrison, Campos, Davis, Franklin, Lehman, Patterson, Toles and Turner.  Please thank them!
