The events in our nation’s capital today are appalling, and the actions taken by federal elected officials, including the President, to stoke these unfounded fears and divisive sentiments are unconscionable and rooted in white supremacy.  A coup attempt is happening on U.S. soil at the U.S. Capitol, and the way that both our national leaders and the American people respond to these events will define our future. And the contrast between the treatment of these insurrectionists and the peaceful non-armed Black Lives Matter protestors speaks volumes. Side with democracy, support a peaceful transition of power.
