Republican State Leadership Committee Calls for Peace and Healing Ahead of Inauguration

WASHINGTON – The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) today released the following statement condemning violence and civil unrest:

“From the devastating riots in cities across the country last summer to the vile attacks on the U.S. Capitol last week, political violence has shaken America to her core. As we near next week’s peaceful transition of power – the pillar of any free democracy – the RSLC urges every American in Washington and in the states to take personal responsibility and act in a civilized manner. No degree of frustration or disappointment excuses violent behavior – ever. In this difficult moment, we must work together to heal our nation. The actions taken in the coming days and weeks will be ingrained in history. We pray for peace in our nation’s capital, in our state capitals, and throughout the nation as our country moves forward together.”
