DC Statehood Now

DC Statehood Logo

DC residents fulfill all of the obligations of US citizenship and yet are denied the full rights and privileges of American citizenship, including full voting rights in the US House of Representatives and US Senate and full control over its own local affairs. Mayor Muriel Bowser continues the fight for DC to become the 51st state.

DC’s elected delegate in the House of Representatives, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, does not have full voting rights. Statehood is the only remedy that provides full representation in Congress for the residents of Washington, DC.
