Jan. 6 Insurrection: One Year Later

The political violence perpetrated at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, was both shocking and sadly predictable. Today, the extremist, conspiratorial beliefs that animated the attack continue to infect every aspect of our society. ADL continues to speak out and take action— join us in this fight.

The ideologies underpinning the January 6 attack continue to pose a serious and imminent threat to our democracy. We are proud of the progress ADL and our supporters have made in the aftermath of January 6—tracking and identifying extremist connections, testifying on Capitol Hill, serving as co-counsel in a civil lawsuit against Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, and advocating for critical legislation—but the fight is far from over.

It is vital that we continue to fight… we continue to act… we continue to push back and speak out against extremism and hate. In particular, we hope you join us in supporting the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act. Because only together, as a community, can we ensure that our democracy is protected against politically-motivated, violent mobs.

Call on your representative to pass the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

Tell Congress: Support the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act

Congress must act to ensure that the federal government uses every tool at its disposal to protect communities from the very real menace of domestic terrorism. The bipartisan Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021 (H.R. 350/S.964) seeks to address the growing threat of white supremacist groups and other violent domestic extremists. This includes creating new offices across the federal government that would be responsible for monitoring, analyzing, investigating, and prosecuting domestic terrorism.
