January 6th: A Day of Remembrance and Action

image of ...
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. 
 
There are candlelight vigils and community gatherings happening across America. Find one near your community! 
 
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. 
 
Join a candlelight vigil and gathering near you on January 6th, 2022! 
 
This year, we are seizing back power by coming together for material changes that will finally safeguard our voting rights and our democracy. 
 
You can also share information about the events tonight across social media, here is an easy to use toolkit. 
 
Can’t attend an in-person event due to COVID or other conflict, but still want to show your support? Put a lighted candle (or one that works on a battery but looks like a candle) in a window visible to the street on the evening of Jan. 6, just as a way of saying metaphorically, “I want to keep light and democracy alive.” Then, if you are on social media, take a photo of it and post with the hashtag #lightupdemocracy.”
