In the face of an unprecedented assault on our country today, the election of Joe Biden as our next president will be certified. The Joyce Foundation condemns this dangerous attempt to subvert the democratic process. Voters have spoken and their voices will not be silenced by violence.
That the process resumed in spite of the attack on the U.S. Capitol is a testament to the resiliency of our democracy. That the insurrection occurred at all - and that predominately white rioters were allowed to storm the building unabated when people of color protesting peacefully met brutal force mere months ago - underscores that we as a country have much work to do to live up to our founding ideals.
Tonight, we lament a dark day in our nation.
Tomorrow, we work to make the days ahead much brighter.
