Washington Post contributor and Saudi Arabian dissident Jamal Khashoggi was murdered while visiting his home country's consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

We suggest renaming the street address of the Saudi Embassy (currently 601 New Hampshire Avenue in Washington DC) into Jamal Khashoggi Way to be a daily reminder to Saudi officials that such behavior is totally unacceptable and as an expression of Washington's unstinting support for freedom of the press.

Per rules of the DC Council, a person can have a public street or building named after them only after they have been deceased for two years or more. Given the principles at stake, we urge Mayor Muriel Bowser and the DC Council to make an exception in this case.
