It’s been nearly one year since armed right-wing militants attacked our Capitol and tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Since that time the same extremist politicians who incited the attack have tried to block the investigation into the violence, state legislators have passed one anti-voter bill after another, local election officials have faced death threats, and the potential for future election sabotage has only grown.
We must not forget what happened — and we must demand action from our leaders to prevent another attack on our democracy.
That’s why we’re organizing candlelight vigils across the country on Thursday, January 6, to lift up our voices and say: We are One America. This can never happen again. The Senate must act to pass legislation immediately to protect our democracy.
No matter our color, background, or party, most of us believe that people who betray our nation and endanger our lives have no business governing in our name. That’s why we must stand together in this moment.
In 2020, we turned out in record numbers, made sure our votes were counted, and that the will of the people prevailed. Throughout 2021, we’ve organized to protect the freedom to vote, stop partisan gerrymandering, and prevent election sabotage. It’s been a long, hard fight, and we’re closer to the finish line now than we’ve ever been.
But we can’t stop now — we need to keep up the momentum for our freedom to vote.
