January 6 Vigil for Democracy

Start: Thursday, January 06, 2022 6:00 PM

January 6 2021 was a violent and deadly attack against our democracy. Right-wing militants attacked our Capitol, put thousands of DC workers at risk, and tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Exactly one year later, Americans across race, place, party, and background are holding candlelight vigils to say: voters decide the outcome of elections. To prevent this kind of attack from happening again, our elected leaders must pass urgent legislation that will protect this country from anti-democratic forces who are continuing their efforts to destroy it. As socialists, we know we must do everything we can to prevent the rise of fascism. We invite all who agree to join us for a peaceful vigil in Highland Square at 6 PM.

We will meet near the benches outside of the library. Please dress warmly (this is an outdoor event) and bring signs with pro-democracy and/or antifascist messaging. Parking in the Highland Square lot behind the library is free.
