Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians, 

We know: the time for DC statehood is now. The time to end the disenfranchisement of more than 700,000 taxpaying Americans is now. 

For 220 years, the injustice of taxation without representation has lived on in Washington, DC. But now our nation has the opportunity, and a clear path forward, to finally right this wrong. With the passage of H.R. 51 in the 116th Congress, DC came closer than ever before to statehood. Now, we carry that momentum into Monday's hearing on the Washington, DC Admission Act.

We are prepared, once again, to make the case for statehood. I hope you will join me by watching the hearing and sharing your own #DCStatehood stories.

Tomorrow: HerStory 5K and Spring Cleanup

HerStory 5K

Tomorrow, on Saturday, March 20, join residents across all eight wards in honoring and celebrating the more than 350,000 women and girls living in Washington, DC by participating in the third annual #FITDC HerStory 5K. This year, instead of gathering at one location, residents are encouraged to run/walk in their neighborhood or on one of the suggested public 5K routes. DPR will also open select locations with running tracks and allow residents to come and go as they please. Register and learn more at HerStory5k.com.

Tomorrow is also Mayor Bowser's Spring Cleanup, so take 5 minutes to clean up outside your home, 30 minutes to clean up your block, or team up with others for a full-neighborhood scrub. Learn more about the cleanup HERE
