June 24, 2020

Stasha Rhodes from the organization 51 for 51 joined Shira Lazar and Ryan Mitchel from CHANNEL Q'S Let's Go There with Shira and Ryan, to discuss how Washington D.C. could end up being the 51st state. Stasha explained that while every other state has Governors and Senators fighting for them, D.C. is directly governed by congress. Rhodes went on to say that people are "scared to give D.C. statehood due to the amount of Black and Brown people that live there".

Let's Go There will be following this story to give any updates.
