Young Suffragists Protest Taxation Without Representation in DC

 

Washington, DC - Youth advocates from Washington, DC and California have activities planned tomorrow and Saturday to raise awareness about taxation without representation in the nation's capital. The Young Suffragists' annual event is a protest on Friday in front of the White House, where dozens of youngsters march along the sidewalk and sing their signature song, "Do You Have a Senator?"

 

"This is an inspiring event," said DC Vote Executive Director Ilir Zherka. "There is nothing more persuasive than the determination of young girls and boys demanding the vote for DC."

 

Who: DC Young Suffragists

What: Annual White House Protest for DC Voting Rights

When: Tomorrow, Friday, June 15 from 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Where: Lafayette Park's Southwest Quadrant, Washington, DC

 

 

In addition to the Friday White House rally, Young Suffragists organizers Jane Malhotra and Jenny Smulson have announced that the Young Suffragists in DC and California invite media to a kid-planned, bi-coastal shout out called "I Scream for Senators!" on Saturday.

 

What: A kids' 15-second, simultaneous cross-continental scream celebrating senators and equal representation for all, followed by free ice cream to soothe sore throats

When: Saturday, June 16, 4:00 PM Eastern/1:00 PM Pacific

 

Where: Washington, DC - Janney Elementary School, 4130 Albemarle, NW, 1/2 block west of Tenleytown Metro

California - Los Gatos Town Plaza, corner of Santa Cruz and W. Main Streets, Los Gatos, CA

 

The protestors aim to end DC's injustice by 2012 -- when their oldest original Young Suffragist will be 18 and voting. The hope is that this DC Suffragist will be able to vote for a voting member of Congress and two senators, just like all other Americans.

The biggest injustice the people of DC are experiencing is the fact that developers not the voters control DC and its political leaders.

 

Even with representation, the voters will be no better off.
