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. Because only together, as a community, can we ensure that our democracy is protected against politically motivated, violent mobs.
