Washington, November 1, 2017 | comments
Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett issued the following statement in commemoration of Liberty Day:
I travel back to Washington D.C., I reflect on the life and legacy of one of our founding fathers, David Hamilton Jackson. And I am reminded of his travels to the Nation's Capitol to petition the Congress for full citizenship rights for Virgin Islanders following the Transfer of 1917.
A son of the soil, David Hamilton Jackson’s ideas and advocacy are responsible for much of the socio-economic and political progression of the Virgin Islands through the 20th Century.
Today, as we to continue working toward building a better and more resilient Virgin Islands post hurricanes Irma and Maria, we have a duty and a responsibility to continue to grow upon those hard-fought advancements.
