Martin Thomas for Shadow U.S. Representative
D.C. Statehood Green Party
Martin Thomas is an experienced activist for peace and social change. He has a proven
track record of drawing attention to the community, as well as local and media, to issues
of injustice. On the campaign trail and when elected, Thomas will organize for a sustained
non-violent direct action campaign that will leave Congress no choice but to grant us our
civil rights and DC Statehood.
D.C.'s "Shadow" Representative must be a dedicated activist. For too long
the "Shadow" Representative has been held by party insiders who wished
only to add a title to their name. I have led actions for D.C. democracy, and am one
of the "D.C. Democracy 7" arrested for standing up to Congress during the
appropriations vote. I am a supporter of the Twenty Citizens for D.C. Democracy lawsuit
which will be heard by the Supreme Court.. My experience with direct action campaigns,
including Stand Up for Democracy in D.C. and the IMF/World Bank protests, demonstrate my
leadership and organizational skills.
Martin Thomas lives in Mt. Pleasant. He is active in the community, serving as an
elected member of the Steering Committee if the DC Statehood Green Party and coaching Babe
Ruth League youth baseball. He runs the DC office of the Peoples Campaign for
Nonviolence. Thomas is co-author of the first-ever environmental guide to vehicles, the
Green Guide to Cars and Trucks.
The fight for DC Statehood cant succeed without your help
- Contribute financially. Like all Green Party candidates nationwide, Thomas will accept
no corporate contributions.
