Tae Phoenix started this petition to President Biden

On January 6, 2021, a crowd of insurrectionist rioters, driven by baseless conspiracy theories and bent on forcibly overturning the results of the 2020 Presidential election, stormed the United States Capitol.

They erected a gallows outside the building, called for the Vice President to be hung, and declared their intentions to shoot the Speaker of the House.

The attempted coup killed five people - including a Capitol Police officer - injured dozens, and traumatized an entire nation as we watched our democracy teeter on the brink.

We should never forget that day - both its horrors and its heroes. We should never allow ourselves to become complacent or to believe that it cannot happen here. We must acknowledge that we would be living in a very different world if the insurrectionists had been successful.

To that end, we call upon our new President, Joseph R. Biden, to designate January 6th as "Constitution Day," a federal holiday to commemorate the attack, celebrate its heroes, examine its ideological and rhetorical underpinnings, and celebrate our wounded but unbroken tradition of peaceful transition of power.
