Official Statement Regarding the Events of 1/6/2021
Official statement from the She Votes board of directors regarding the events at the Capitol on January 6th, 2021:
The She Votes Board was horrified and appalled to see the act of domestic terrorism taking place in Washington, DC today, January 6, 2021. In addition to active voter engagement, the importance of the safety of our elected officials and those whose life's work is foundational to our democracy cannot be overstated. From the Vice President, Senators, and members of Congress to the many employees of the Capitol complex, these individuals are critical to accomplishing the people’s work, and are worthy of safety, consideration, and respect.
We condemn the actions of the individuals who are pictured vandalizing, threatening, and engaging in acts of theft in our Capitol building. As a Board, we condemn all attempts to undermine an election and corresponding acts of democracy. We continue to hope for a peaceful transition of power.
