WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC) President and CEO, Liz Schrayer, released the following statement on the events at the U.S. Capitol today:
With the world watching, our nation’s respect for the peaceful transfer of power has never been more critical. What happened today at the U.S. Capitol was a stark and horrifying reminder of just how fragile and precious democracy is – and why we must all dedicate ourselves to nurturing and protecting it both at home and abroad.
