Let's get ready to... participate in the DC Statehood Rally Aug. 24

Mayor Vincent Gray and others, including you (?) will stage a DC Statehood Rally August 24 from 9:00 - 9:30 am at the DC War Memorial (north side of Independence Ave between World War II and Lincoln Memorials).   "Remembering the Legacy; Where Do We Go From Here?" will raise awareness for the lack of DC Statehood and congressional representation 50 years after the legendary March on Washington.

Attend the rally, listen to the speeches, and show your support for the District gaining independence.   The event is a perfect way to explain democracy to the children in your life and to those who don't live in the region who are―should be―familiar with the lack of rights for DC residents.

When the DC Statehood Rally is over, join the mayor as he walks to the Lincoln Memorial for the main march for the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.
