Shadow Politics with Senator Michael Brown and Maria Sanchez CALL FOR ACTION!!!!! For the second time in American history, the Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee of the United States Senate will conduct a hearing on a DC statehood bill, S.51, on June 22, 2021. I was told by the staff of HSGAC Chairman Gary Peters that I was not welcome to participate in the hearing because the agenda had been set and my testimony was unnecessary –- even though I testified at the very first statehood hearing before this same committee in the Senate on September 15, 2014. I was elected for the sole purpose of representing the 700,000 disenfranchised citizens of the nation's capital in our effort to attain equality through statehood. The voiceless residents of the District of Columbia are further silenced by this action. This is outrageous and the committee should hear from you now! PLEASE CALL THE HOMELAND SECURITY & GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE OFFICE AT (202) 224-2627 AND LEAVE A MESSAGE TO SAY: "LET OUR SENATOR SPEAK!"

On this DC Emancipation Day, we will speak with Ms. Ladner to see if we can learn from her experiences as we pursue the goal of DC statehood. This busy week included the House Committee on Oversight and Reform mark-up and advance of H.R.51, the Washington, DC Admission Act. We are excited to talk with Ms. Dorie Ladner as her years of activism in civil rights in America is an inspiration to all of us who work on making every American citizen equal!!
