Leaders Forum Statement on the Insurrection at the Nation’s Capital

By January 8

The Leaders Forum Consortium of business and thought leaders are both shocked and saddened by the events in the nation’s capital on Wednesday, January 6th.

We are distressed about the damage, violence, and injuries that have occurred. We are grateful that the members of Congress and their staff we have heard from are safe.

Regardless of what political party you align with – the United States is our home and belongs to all of us. On behalf of our members of both parties and those that remain undeclared – we will stand together to emerge from today’s crisis and urge our fellow countrymen and women to do the same.  We will support our constitution, the rule of law and order, and all of our elected leaders to bring peace and prosperity back to America.

The Time to Lead is Now.
