Anise Jenkins receives award from DC Appleseed

Written by

The DC Appleseed Center for Law & Justice held their 2021 Annual Awards Gala on October 14th.

Civil rights leaders joined about 70 D.C. statehood activists at Freedom Plaza in Northwest on Aug. 28 to insist making the District the 51st state is a priority for the national voting rights movement.

While the March on Washington taking place on Aug. 28 will focus on informing Americans about voter suppression measures throughout the country, District leaders and activists don’t want it to be forgotten that residents of the nation’s capital are also disenfranchised.
