As Americans, we all should have equal rights. That means equal citizenship, equal constitutional rights, and equal representation.
But more than 4.7 million Americans are treated as second-class citizens because they live in a U.S. territory or Washington, DC.
We the People Project is dedicated to achieving equal rights for all Americans, no matter where you live.
EQUAL RIGHTS, WHEREVER YOU LIVE.
Equal Citizenship. The federal government denies that Americans born in U.S. territories have a constitutional right to citizenship. We’re defending the right to citizenship in court.
Equal Rights. The federal government argues that it has the power to turn constitutional rights on and off in U.S. territories based on the controversial Insular Cases doctrine. We’re challenging this view in court.
Equal Representation. Americans in the territories and DC are denied federal representation even as many from these areas defend democracy abroad through military service. Working together we can change this.
