"Our goal is two-fold. First, we hope to raise the visibility of Americans in U.S. territories and DC who are treated as second-class citizens because of where they live. Second, we want to bring together Americans in the territories and DC around the goal of equal rights, wherever you live," Neil Weare, President of We the People Project, said.
"Working together, we can bring about real change," he added.
We the People Project's website includes an Equal Rights Pledge for people to demonstrate their support for achieving equal rights and ending the second-class status of Americans in the territories and DC. It is available to be signed at http://www.equalrightsnow.org/equal_rights_pledge.
