DC Vote Working to End Taxation Without Representation

Dear Friends:

By now you have read the news on the DC voting bill. You've seen the headlines, Is the DC House Voting Rights Act Officially Dead? and DC Vote Supporters Defer Fight in Congress.

I'm writing to tell you that the fight for voting rights is far from over.

We, like you, are outraged by the blatant attempts to derail the DC Voting Rights Act and curry favor with the National Rifle Association. We've come so far and we refuse to be defeated by this gun amendment.

Can you help DC Vote send the message to Congress that you soundly reject attempts to gut DC's gun laws and deny DC its local democracy?

In honor of Senator John Ensign's amendment, S.Amdt.575, please donate $57.50 TODAY to fund advertisements in target districts. Your donation sends a message that we will fight Ensign's Amendment (S.Amdt.575) with everything in our power.

We're taking members of Congress like Travis Childers (D-MS) and John Ensign (R-NV) to task for their role in putting DC lives at risk!

You know that DC Vote has been on the frontlines of this battle over a gun amendment to the DC Voting Rights Act. We worked with leaders in the House and Senate, but it seems that the urge to please the NRA runs too deep. But we can, and will, move this bill forward.

Join us in the fight and give $57.50 to DC Vote today!

Congress has no business passing legislation for DC that they would never even consider in their home districts.

Sen. Ensign's home state of Nevada has gun registration requirements. Yet, he wants to make it illegal for the DC Government to require gun registration now or in the future. He isn't stopping there, though. Click here for more details on what the Ensign Amendment would do.

People in the states need to know what their members of Congress are supporting. They need to know that members like Ensign and Childers have voted to put the lives of DC residents at risk. It's time for DC Vote to ramp up our efforts and get even more aggressive in our tactics.

Your donation of $57.50 gives us the boost we need to place as many ads as possible in target districts.

I hope we can count on your continued support. With the help and dedication of donors like you, we WILL see the DC Voting Rights Act enacted in this Congress.
