As if tensions weren’t already running high among Americans as the U.S. senate met on January 6, 2021 to count votes from the electoral college, the assault on the capital building has significantly exasperated political and social unrest.

- Establish appropriate political expressions of policies; and
- Create safe places for dialogue.
