Our U.S. Senator should work for full self-determination of our residents, DC Statehood. Only Statehood will deliver full voting rights with permanent budgetary and legislative autonomy. We must organize locally, nationally, internationally for DC Statehood. I pledge to empower this struggle by addressing our residents’ economic, social and environmental human rights, now violated by both Congress and our local government by their privileging the 1% over the 99%. Establish a DC Public Bank serving our residents, ending Wall Street banking our revenues. End the drug war, full rights for our Returning Citizens! Education not incarceration, Jobs not Jails!
Eugene Puryear is our endorsed candidate for City Council At-Large, I am endorsed by our Party as well. I strongly urge DC Statehood Green Party members to consider voting for Eugene Puryear in our contested primary on April 1, 2014. We are both Howard University Alumni and I am delighted to run in partnership with Eugene, an outstanding champion of our working class and low income community, especially our Returning Citizens. Eugene's website: http://www.EugenePuryear.com. Eugene's brilliant book "Shackled and Chained, Mass Incarceration in Capitalist America" is a valuable contribution to the struggle to end "the New Jim Crow".
