ABA Statement on Political Engagement

“As we made clear in our statement Wednesday, the violent riot on Capitol Hill was nothing short of an assault on our democracy. We continue to call on all elected officials to do everything in their power to support a peaceful transition of power.

"As we do after every election, we will meet with all of our stakeholders in the coming weeks to review our political activities from the last campaign cycle before making any decisions about future plans. The troubling events of the last week will certainly be a consideration in those discussions."
