ABA Statement on Today's Attack on our Democracy

“This is a dark day for our democracy. The violence playing out on Capitol Hill and in the streets of Washington is reprehensible and should shock and sadden all of us. Our nation is better than this.

“At this challenging moment for our country, and for so many Americans, our elected leaders must immediately condemn today's mob riot and do everything they can to support the peaceful transfer of power.”
