We all know what happened on January 6, 2021. A violent uprising against our government illustrated how close we are to the demise of democracy and truth in this country.

On January 6, a faction of elected officials turned their backs on America by inciting armed right-wing militants to attack our Capitol and then tried to block an investigation to cover up their role in this violence. So this January 6, exactly one year later, Americans across race, place, party, and background all across the country are holding candlelight vigils to say: We are the UNITED States of America. We can never let this happen again.
