DC Statehood: Fixing the Hole in Our Democracy.

  • Tenley - Friendship Neighborhood Library 4450 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20016 United States (map)

National Association of Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE), Chapter 1795 (Chevy Chase DC) presents the following public forum:

Anne Anderson of the League of Women Voters of the District of Columbia will lead an interactive presentation that traces the history of DC's political disenfranchisement, the decades of striving by the League and other grassroots citizen groups to advance DC's political status, and the path to Statehood for the District of Columbia ahead.

This is the presentation we have taken on the road to cities across the county to educate and inform Americans about the situation in DC. You can also check out our DC Statehood Toolkit with more information about the issue.
