Rally for statehood at the "Let Freedom Ring" Closing Ceremony, Aug. 28 (updated)

If you missed the DC Rally for Statehood and Self-determination, then this August 28 event is for you!

UPDATE 8/27, 12:25 pm: Mayor Gray will be speaking at approximately 11:00 am at the Lincoln.   Signs and banners are not allowed but people can wear their statehood t-shirts and EOM may be providing small DC flags.   The mayor is still interested in making the most of this final 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington event--just without all the hoopla of signs!

The "Let Freedom Ring" closing ceremony takes place from 1:00 - 5:30 pm at the Lincoln Memorial.

Mayor Gray and others are looking to make the final day of the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the 1963 March on Washington big for the District of Columbia.  

If you are interested in attending and showing your support for DC statehood and rejecting taxation without representation, contact Steve Glaude via email.
