We are inviting you to take the DC Statehood Survey - no matter where you may live in the United States
The survey results will provide real information on the current levels of awareness and support across the country for full citizenship rights for the 632,000 people living in Washington, DC.
You can say you support DC Statehood or you can say no - but we want to know! But, of course, we have some information to give to you on the subject of Statehood too. We ask that you take only 3 minutes of you time - It's really easy and fast! An official report based on the results will be issued by the end of 2013.

Today, two days before the 4th of July, Consumer activist, long time organizer and DC resident, Ralph Nader, held a press conference today calling for local and national organizations to participate in a Strike for DC Statehood to "protest the colonial status of the District of Columbia, whose residents are prohibited from forming a state and having two voting Senators and one Representative in the Congress. by postponing arrival at work for 15 minutes on July 9, 2012, 30 minutes on August 1, 2012, 45 minutes on September 10, 2012 and one hour on October 1, 2012 and use that time and other times to expand our circle of solidarity on Statehood
On July 9, Stand Up! for Democracy in DC (Free DC) will join consumer advocate and citizen rights organizer, Ralph Nader, local and national groups and other DC statehood supporters to launch a general limited Strike for DC Statehood. We call on all DC residents, their family, friends, relatives and supporters to postpone your arrival to work for 15 minutes! It's a painless but important way to start a campaign here for our liberty
