Statement from WVDP Chairwoman Belinda Biafore One Year After Jan 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol:
Today as we reflect on the tragic attack on the Capitol one year ago, we think of those who lost their lives, those who were hiding in fear, and those brave men and women who protected the Capitol. The insurrection was a direct response provoked by the violent rhetoric of Donald Trump with the intent to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after the election.
As we reflect on what happened that day we know that it was a direct attempt to stop the certification of the election and we are thankful for the lawmakers and staff who did not allow it to happen. The insurrection was a violent threat to our American democracy created and fueled by the former president. Lives were lost that day. We must recognize the reality of what happened so that we can continue to defend and strengthen our democracy.
Today we pray for the loved ones of those who lost their lives and all who were affected by the events on January 6th, 2021.
