Respect and Democracy

by | Jan 7, 2021 | Corporate

Yesterday, we witnessed a shocking attack on our democracy, as a mob stormed the U.S. Capitol building. We believe that listening to one another’s’ divergent views is foundational to a democratic society. However, yesterday’s actions of mob violence are never an acceptable response.

Looking ahead, we support the peaceful transition of power and hope that the next two weeks leading to the inauguration of a new president and historic vice president will showcase the strength of the American spirit – and the resiliency of our electoral protocols. As an insurance company, we are about protecting businesses, the individuals that make up those institutions, local communities and the overall economy. We will stand strong in support of those obligations, but also in support of our democracy, and against actions that threaten the pillars of our country.
