A Message to the DGH Community - We are Here to Support You and We Stand with You

Dear DGH community,

We are reaching out in support and solidarity as we reel from recent events. Today, supporters of President Trump violently entered the US Capitol and disrupted the counting of certified electoral votes, encouraged by the President’s false claims of election fraud. The disruption of our democratic process in Washington, DC and the violence we are witnessing are deeply disturbing. We recognize that these scenes may be distressing, especially to members of our community who have lived through coups and civil unrest.
