Ocean Conservancy’s CEO Janis Searles Jones (@InVeritas_Jones) released the following statement on the one-year anniversary of the insurrection at the Capitol, calling for congressional passage of voting rights reform:

“Today marks the one-year anniversary of a dark day in our nation’s history – the violent occupation of our nation’s capital and the undemocratic attempt to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power after a free and fair presidential election.

“At Ocean Conservancy, core beliefs power our work: that the ocean belongs to all of us; that everyone should have the right and access to a clean, healthy, thriving ocean; and that everyone has a role to play in protecting our ocean.

“Democracy matters to our mission to protect the ocean. Our work at Ocean Conservancy is supported by people using their voices to call for change to help the ocean and all who rely on it. In the year since the Capitol insurrection there have been concerted efforts to limit voting access and ongoing threats to the integrity and security of our elections. That’s why today, we call on Congress to strengthen voting rights to ensure equitable access to the ballot box and protect our democracy for generations to come.”
