Statement from Dean Michael S. Barr on the violence in Washington, DC

January 6, 2021

I am horrified and angered by the violence and lawlessness we've seen today in DC targeting our democracy. I condemn the actions of the anti-democratic thugs who violently attacked our Capitol and the actions of the political leaders who incite and encourage them. Our democracy is strong, but it is under attack, and it requires all of us to stand up for it.
