We’ve seen signs pop up around the neighborhood in various places linking statehood for DC to the opening of the Martin Luther King Memorial. The photo above is on 9th Street NW in Mount Vernon Square and the photo below is in the window of Tangysweet at 7th and E St NW. We get the reference and interestingly, the link on the signs points to a DC Government site, statehood.dc.gov. This had us wondering who printed the signs and put them up. The photo after the break answers the question.
It’s the DC Host Committee for the MLK Memorial Dedication who put this effort together.
