Statement from Janson Wu, GLAD Executive Director on the Events at the Capitol
January 6, 2021
Like you, we at GLAD are watching in horror at what is happening in D.C. today. We are hoping first and foremost for everyone’s safety. This outrageous and terrifying display is the culmination of the last four years of white supremacist attacks on our democracy. Any elected leader who refuses to condemn the actions of this mob and the words of a President who continues to spread lies about a free and fair election, is promoting the demise of our democracy. Any member of Congress who acts in support of conspiracy theories that the election was stolen is doing the same. Democracy must and will prevail.
