Michael Adler started this petition to Congress and President Joe Biden

Make statehood for Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico the top agenda items for 2021. These territories and the people who live in them have been treated like second class citizens for far too long. They have been asking for statehood for decades and it's high time they received it. Now that the Democratic party has both houses of congress and the presidency, this can be accomplished over Republican obstruction. We may only have two years to make this happen before Mitch McConnel takes back Senate leadership and grinds all progress to a halt, so let's make it a top priority! This action would add four senate seats to the U.S. Senate.
