DC Voting Rights Rally on Wednesday

The following announcement is from DC Vote.

With Veterans' Day coming soon, DC Vote is asking veterans and their families to shine attention on the Senate's filibuster of the DC Voting Rights Act. The District of Columbia has lost daughters and sons in every American conflict, yet Washingtonians are denied representation in the Congress that sends our sons and daughters to war. Please help us make a strong statement by joining us this Wednesday at our Veterans for DC Voting Rights Rally and Lobby Day.

When: Wednesday, November 7, 11:00 AM -12:30 PM
Where: Outside the Dirksen Senate Building (1st Street and Constitution Avenue, NE)
Who: American veterans, their family, and other supporters of DC voting rights

After the public rally for DC voting rights, groups of veterans, joined by media, will visit the offices of filibustering Senators to personally express their opinion and seek a response.

If you are a veteran or know veterans supportive of DC Voting Rights, please join us on November 7. To help facilitate the rally and lobby events, please RSVP to Eugene D. Kinlow (ekinlow@dcvote.org or 202.462.6000 x13) and let us know if you can come and indicate if you are a veteran.

Thanks for your support!
Eugene D. Kinlow,
Outreach Director

P.S. We encourage all veterans and their family and friends to wear attire showing their affiliation to the Armed Forces.
