Why Congress must pass HR 1 and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act - Roll Call

We cannot imagine what Capitol Police officers have gone through these past couple of months.

They make so many sacrifices to keep us safe—for which we are eternally grateful.

Our thoughts are with the officers who were injured, the deceased & their families.

We are with you.

We are horrified at the senseless acts of violence that occurred at our nation’s Capitol today.

No words are strong enough to condemn these actions or to express our gratitude to the brave officers for their service.

We pray for peace during a time of extreme grief.
