Rally to mark 2nd anniversary of Capitol insurrection

Published: 01-01-2023 5:31 PM

This January 6 marks the second anniversary of the insurrection. The bipartisan January 6th Select Committee has shown that Trump and his MAGA allies planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy to overturn an election they knew they’d lost. On Dec. 20 the Committee referred four criminal charges for Donald Trump and others for their role in leading a violent criminal conspiracy to overturn the outcome of the 2020 elections.

Even though some of the most prominent election conspiracists lost their midterms, they are already looking to 2024 for ways to overturn the will of voters. They are working to sabotage future elections by changing state laws.

That is why I am organizing “Our Freedoms Our Votes ” rally on Jan. 6 from 4 to 5 p.m. at Northampton City Hall. Trump and his MAGA Republican allies must be held accountable for their conspiracy to overthrow a free and fair election and for halting the peaceful transition of power. Thanks to a generous grant from Public Citizen I will be giving away 125 caps.

We cannot be complacent and we must protect our elections by protecting voters, election officials, and a free and fair process.
