Many Americans are unaware of our lack of full democracy. Others are unaware how far we’ve come in our campaign to end this injustice. When we organize, we can win – so reach out to everyone you can and get them on board. 

 

Sample Emails 

 

Sample # 1

Friends, 

Have you heard the news about how far we have come to achieve DC Statehood? The Washington DC Admission Act, HR 51 will come before the whole House of Representatives soon, and it already has enough co-sponsors to pass. This will be the first time in history a chamber of Congress has done this!  

 

Please support our efforts to keep the momentum going and sign DC Vote’s petition. This is how we build the grass roots power to win. Thanks! 

 

Sample #2

Friends, 

Have I ever told you how crummy it is to have no voice in Congress? With all the things going on in the country today, it kills me to not be able to call a Senator and tell them what I think. 

 

You, my friend, can help end this. The Washington DC Admission Act, HR 51 will come before the whole House of Representatives soon, and it already has enough co-sponsors to pass. This will be the first time in history a chamber of Congress has done this!  

 

Please support our efforts to keep the momentum going and sign DC Vote’s petition. This is how we build the grass roots power to win. Thanks!
