Just a few days before D.C. leaders will speak before Congress about a D.C. statehood bill, the statehood cause gained a famous new supporter: Alyssa Milano.
The actress, activist and philanthropist tweeted her support of D.C. statehood to her 3.7 million followers on Tuesday.
Milano is best known for her starring role on the Y2K-era hit television show “Charmed” and her ensuing years of progressive activism. She champions a wide range of causes, including the #MeToo movement, transgender rights, gun violence prevention, and Democratic politicians like President Joe Biden.
She’s not the only big name to push for D.C. statehood recently.
