January 6th, One Year Later: Rep. Adam Schiff & Rabbi Sharon Brous Discuss the Democracy Crisis


January 2nd, 2022 — Rabbi Sharon Brous

This week marks the first anniversary of the attack on our government last January by supporters of the former president, a violent, coordinated effort to overthrow the results of the election. I had the opportunity to talk with Congressman Adam Schiff about the meaning of this moment, and what we must do to protect our democracy and root our government in justice and equality. Like many of you, both Rep Schiff and I feel the fierce urgency of now. In the days ahead, we all must do everything we can to pull our nation back from the edge of the abyss.

-Rabbi Sharon Brous
