FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 25, 2015

Statement of DC Vote Executive Director Kimberly Perry on the introduction of a bill to admit a 51st state into the union in order to provide equal rights and full citizenship for the 660,000 residents currently living in the District of Columbia.

“Senator Carper’s bill, and the significant support upon introduction, demonstrates hard work and self-determination can make a difference in our push for full democratic rights as Americans. As DC Vote works to win new support across the country for equal political rights for the District, we are now able to show members of Congress from both chambers take our demand for equality seriously.”
