We are appalled by the violence shown by demonstrators who stormed the U.S. Capitol today.  We believe firmly in people’s First Amendment rights to peaceful protest; however, the violent attack by mobs who endanger others and thwart democracy is unconscionable and devastating to the country.  A peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joseph Biden must occur.  

We are grateful for the outpouring of support from friends and Friends across the world.  FCNL staff are safe. We will offer a longer statement tomorrow.
