from People For the American Way's Right Wing Watch

On January 6, 2021, our democracy teetered on the brink as a mob stormed the U.S. Capitol with the goal of overturning the presidential election. The attempted coup was shocking but not unforeseen; in fact, far-right activists and highly-placed officials had been plotting for months.

The bipartisan January 6 Committee is uncovering the conspiracy that led to this crime against our country and begins public hearings on June 9th.

With the tools on this site, you can take action to spread the word and ensure this never happens again.
