Anne Anderson is the chair of the League of Women Voters-DC Committee for Full Rights for DC Citizens. Anne has lived in DC since 1964 – the first year that DC citizens were allowed to vote for president. She has been working on DC statehood issues since 1971 when the current idea to keep a smaller federal district and make the rest of DC a state was born.
Most recently, Anne has been traveling around the country talking with fellow Leaguers in the 50 states, educating them about DC statehood – thanks to help from the League of Women Voters Education Fund and the DC Democracy grants. Professionally, she has a psychotherapy practice as a clinical social worker in association with the Washington Therapy Guild.
