OPEN TO THE PUBLIC I On January 6, 2021, a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters attacked the United States Capitol with the goal of overturning Trump’s lost re-election bid. Although most Americans feared they were witnessing the crumbling of America’s democracy, others supported the attackers.
The January 6 Project examines the historical, cultural, and political events that led to the attack with the goal of understanding its causes, in all its forms, in order to shed light and expose truths for an informed citizenry to act to prevent this type of assault on democracy.
