January 2009--Perhaps two million visitors will be in town for the Inauguration.  Interest groups are working to get their messages out...
"Yes We Can!" signs promoting DC statehood started appearing around Jan. 10 and are up in many places around the city.  The signs are paid for by the DC Statehood Delegation Fund.

Jan. 12--"Bring change to America" is checked off on a MoveOn.org Political Action sign on the side of a MetroBus.  The sign states, "5 million members.  Ready to get started."

Meetup plans to distribute a half million name tags
to promote community organizing.  (press release)
