The assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, was an unprecedented moment of violence and self-destruction. The Spring Speakers Series, "American Impasse: Politics, Citizenship, and Democracy in 2021," sponsored by the Catholic University of America’s School of Arts and Sciences, has gathered leading voices from across the political spectrum to discuss the origins and effects of January 6.

On April 26, join panelists Henry Olsen, Senior Fellow at Ethics & Public Policy Center; Francis Rooney, Former Congressman and Ambassador to the Holy See; and Michael Tomasky, Editor-in-Chief for Democracy, for the program “January 6: Citizenship and the Future of American Democracy.” Moderated by Cara H.
