Below is a video testimony given at "The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values" Washington DC service on August 28, 2016, on the Need for DC statehood and voting rights in Congress. A summary transcript of the video follows:
Anise Jenkins wants to "Free DC" and have Representation in Congress for Washington DC that should go along with her taxes that she pays as a US citizen. She advocates statehood for Washington DC. The irony is that they can not vote for DC statehood because they have no representation in Congress to bring resolutions to a vote for DC statehood. Full citizenship offers the right to have representation in Congress. The same should be true for the 700,000 residents of Washington DC.
