Today at 1:00 PM, DC Vote, along with democracy activists from across the District, will assemble at the Office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Several leaders of the group and activists will address the press.

We will hold a press conference to demand that the Senate strike language in the FY2015 spending bill that seeks to overturn the will of DC voters, who overwhelmingly approved Initiative 71 in November.

Some members plan to use ongoing negotiations over the 2015 spending bill to block the will of DC residents. They want to overturn the initiative that two-thirds of District voters supported just two weeks ago! 

One member even quipped that if people in DC want autonomy or a vote in Congress, they should move to a state. We need your help to let Congress know that democracy matters, and we will not still while they trample on our local rights.
