Reflecting on the Events on Capitol Hill – January 6, 2021

Yesterday, our democracy was tested on the steps of our Nation’s Capitol. That democracy, as fragile as it is in this moment, held firm. At DANA, we celebrate our democracy and all the freedoms it provides to us as Americans – freedoms that include the right to Voice and Vote. These freedoms do not extend to violence. What occurred on January 6, 2021 is unacceptable and we condemn the violence.
We celebrate the courage of those who raise their voices, vote, and take reasonable and peaceful actions to make the world a better place. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who experienced loss and injury.
Nonprofit missions focus on creating stronger communities and bettering the lives of those around us. We need to come together as nonprofits and continue to do the hard work of healing our communities, for this will be what keeps our democracy strong.
