Living in DC is great. For all intensive purposes I love it (pun intended). But there’s one teeny, weeny detail that often gets overlooked by DC residents — our lack of presence in Congress.

That’s right. As some of your may or may not be aware of, District citizens lack congressional representation.  District artist Peter Krsko plans to raise awareness with his new campaign called “Give Me A Vote.”

WTOP reports that Krsko’s “Give Me A Vote” campaign will place 100 sculptures of a raised hand throughout our city to draw attention to the lack of representation in Congress.

The 3-foot, 5-foot, and 7-foot Fiberglas sculptures will be placed  next week and stay up for at least a month.

Rachel moved to DC in the fall of 2005 to study Journalism and Music at American University. When she’s not keeping up with the latest Major League Baseball news, she works on making music as an accomplished singer-songwriter and was even a featured performer/speaker at TEDxDupont Circle in 2012. Rachel has also contributed to The Washington Examiner and MASN Sports’ Nationals Buzz as a guest blogger. See why she loves DC. E-Mail: rachel@welovedc.com.
