The January 6, 2021 Events in Washington, D.C.

As Americans, we have since our country's founding placed a high value on the peaceful transfer of political power and the rule of law. The violence and mayhem we witnessed at our nation's Capitol on January 6 were intended explicitly to halt that peaceful transfer, and those shocking events underscore that our commitment to these values can never be taken for granted. Now, as always, we must reaffirm, recommit, and uphold these constitutional values in our lives and in our institutions — local, national, and international.
