US Rep Dr. Oye WINS 2020 Election

US Representative Owolewa’s 100 day plan outlines the focus areas and programs he would like to implement for DC residents. In light of the events on January 6, 2021where our national’s capitol was under attack, US Rep Dr. Oye’s 100 Day plan has changed from focusing on DC Statehood. It has evolved to reach beyond DC Statehood to the new beginnings of the Douglass Commonwealth. Now is the time for DC residents to be heard and democracy to be restored for us all. US Representative Owolewa and his team are ready for the fight to #takebackamerica in these first 100 days.
