We the people reject political violence

Americans have always been passionate about politics. We are, after all, a nation born from protest and revolution.
We believe in vigorous debate. The very ratification of our Constitution hinged on the passage of the First Amendment, guaranteeing our freedom of religion, of assembly, and of speech.
What we have never embraced is that a more perfect union could result from political violence.
Now is the time for all of our nation’s leaders to come together and demand a discourse that rejects violence on our streets.
