11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

LWV-Downeast hosts a monthly radio program on democracy in cooperation with WERU FM that is rebroadcast on WMPG-FM.

This month, we'll have a conversation on statehood for the District of Columbia. What rights of self-determination do DC residents now enjoy? How are their rights now constrained? What are the obstacles to DC statehood? What is the history? What is the racial justice aspect to this issue? Against the backdrop of Maine's own struggle for statehood and the Missouri Compromise, why should Maine people care?
