Statehood for D.C. "Teach In"

On Thursday, June 9, 2011, the ACLU-NCA and D.C. statehood supporters held a teach in on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Statehood supporters spoke, including D.C.'s two statehood senators, Michael D. Brown and Paul Strauss, and D.C. Marine veteran C. Antonio Day.

A panel of experts led the teach in. On the panel were Dr. Toni-Michelle C. Travis, an Associate Professor of Government and Politics at George Mason University who recently wrote Democratic Destiny and the District of Columbia" with the late Dr. Ronald Walters; Ed Lazere, director of the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute; Dr. Garry Young, Associate Director of George Washington University's Institute of Public Policy, an Associate Research Professor in the GWU Department of Political Science and the author of The District of Columbia and its Lack of Representation in Congress: What Difference Does It Make?. Yvette Mouton, a former U.S. Attorney in D.C., under Joe DiGenova, and in New Jersey, under Michael Chertoff, and a former Television News Anchorwoman, moderated.

The evening was capped by a concert with the best of D.C.'s musical talent including The Porch Pickers, Amanda Carter, a.k.a. 330, Uptown XO, Rasi Caprise, Wayna, Dennis Sobin, Tricia Kinch, Amber Simon, and the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown. Despite the recrod heat, statehood activists had a chance to get down and boogie on the West Lawn (see photos below).

Johnny Barnes, ACLU-NCA Executive Director, announced how to use a cell phone to support statehood.  You can contribute $10 to the ACLU-NCA statehood campaign by texting DC51 to 20222.  A one-time donation of $10 will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your prepaid balance.  Messaging and data rates may apply and all charges are billed by and payable to your mobile service provider. The account holder must authorize the donation. Donations are collected for the benefit of the "ACLU-NCA" by the Mobile Giving Foundation. You can unsubscribe at any time by texting STOP to short code "20222" and ask for help by texting HELP to "20222."

Among the groups co-sponsoring the Teach In were the D.C. Black Veterans Association, D.C. Statehood - Yes We Can!, Stand Up! For Democracy in D.C., D.C. Prisons Foundation, D.C. Democratic State Committee, DC Vote, NDLON, Empower D.C., GLAA, the Drug Reform Coalition, YWCA, the National Latino Alliance for DC Statehood, and the D.C. Statehood Green Party.

June 11, 2011 Capital Pride Parade

Statehood activists joined with the ACLU-NCA to participate in the D.C. Capital Pride Parade through downtown Washington, D.C. The ACLU and statehood activists found an enthusiastic reception for their message among the crowd as LGBT activists thoroughly understand the need for statehood and how it will permanently protect their, and all of our, rights permanently. Congress's recent actions in adding budget riders to the D.C. budget were a sharp reminder of how fragile the rights of D.C. citizens, absent statehood, are.
