Running the news: “On January 6, we all saw what our country would look like if the forces trying to destroy our democracy were successful, anarchy, violence, anarchy,” Harris said.

  • “January 6 shows the dual nature of democracy, its fragility and its strength. You see, the strength of democracy is the rule of law… The strength of democracy is that it empowers the people.”
  • “And the fragility of democracy is that if we’re not vigilant, if we don’t protect it, democracy just won’t stand up. It will falter and fail,” Harris said.
  • Harris also urged for the expansion of voting rights, “We must pass the voting rights bills that are now before the Senate. We cannot sit on the sidelines; we must unite in defending our democracy.”
