We the People: Day of Remembrance and Action
Last January 6th’s insurrection at the Capitol was an attack against our country, our democracy, and our freedom as voters. This attack by right-wing militants demonstrated the dangers facing our nation and underscored the urgency with which we need to transform our political system into one that works for all of us.
One year later, we still don’t have the protections our democracy needs. That’s why the US Senate and President Biden must do whatever is necessary to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, the Protecting our Democracy Act, and DC Statehood now.
And–that’s why this January 6th, communities across America are coming together for candlelight vigils and community events to send one simple and critical message: we must protect our voting rights and our democracy. And we are demanding that our Senators act to pass the legislation necessary to do so.
Dallas is hosting a vigil from 6pm to 7pm. Please join us on FB Live.
Coming together, we can build people-powered grassroots pressure to demand legislation that will prevent another January 6th attack and realize the promise of democracy for all of us–no matter our color, zip code, or income–so we all have an equal say in the decisions that shape our daily lives and futures.
