For almost 30 years, OTOC has been working as part of a national network to teach and practice the political skills necessary to effectively, respectfully participate in the democratic process. What happened yesterday in DC was an assault on democracy. OTOC condemns the acts of violence that were witnessed by the world, and commit to continuing the work of restoring democracy through engaging in the practices of public life relationally, persistently, and democratically.

We echo this statement from West Southwest IAF and are proud to be a part of this network.
