National Children's Campaign started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

The attack on the capitol on January 6th, 2021 was a horrifying incident, sure to go down in American history. Terrorists stormed the US capitol building in anger and protest to congress voting on Joe Biden's electoral college victory. This attack was disgraceful and the National Children's Campaign does not stand behind any acts of violence. We want Americans, the terrorists, and Donald Trump to know the children are watching. 

Think of how the children feel watching horrific acts of violence on the news, destroying their own nation's capitol. By signing this petition we are urging President Donald Trump to fully condemn the actions of these terrorists who acted in his name. In office we have seen President Trump deny election results and incite violent and divisive behavior. His actions and rhetoric over his term are directly responsible for the reactionary behavior we saw on capitol hill. We are asking Mike Pence to fully condemn violence and the President if he does not do so as well. He should invoke the 25th amendment to show that children and Americans will not tolerate threats to our democracy. This is a time to set a precedent and an example for America's 74 million children that threatening democracy and other people's safety has consequences and we will not tolerate these actions. We are asking all Americans to condemn violence and stand with our organization and children in opposing this behavior.

Adults can set a good example for children. Let's overwhelm the impacts of this event by responding with unity and peace for those of us who are not violent. Lets fight against racial injustice that enabled a group of arms-bearing terrorists to push past police into the capitol.

Lets demand the highest form of  government to do all in their power to stop these violent acts. As individuals lets comfort America's 74 million children and stand up against hate.
