This podcast is a collection of speeches from the January 6, 2022 Vigil for Democracy in Tucson, Arizona. The event was a solemn commemoration of the January 6, 2021 insurrectionist attack on the US Capitol.
Several current and former Arizona Legislators and two Arizona Congressman were highly involved in the Stop the Steal movement to disrupt the certification of the 2020 elections. Arizona is Ground Zero for voter suppression. Many of the elected officials who were involved in Stop the Steal and in the failed audit of the Maricopa County ballots are still in office. Watch out for more voter suppression bills in the coming session of the Arizona Legislature. On January 6, 2022, President Joe Biden said our democracy is still in peril. He's right. In Arizona, we must be particularly vigilant.
