DC DEMS STATEHOOD COMMITTEE

JOIN OUR FIGHT TO MAKE DC THE 51ST STATE

WHAT WE DO

We fight for DC Statehood, using the tools, resources, and network of the Democratic Party to help achieve representation and equity for the 700,000+ residents of Washington, DC. 

 

Democrats have introduced bills in Congress to finally help achieve DC Statehood: HR 51 and S 631. In the 117th Congress (2021-2022), HR51 was re-introduced with a record 202 original sponsors.


DC Statehood is a core issue for Democrats; the Democratic Party platform stresses the importance of Restoring and Strengthening Our Democracy and making Washington, DC the 51st State.
