RIL Statement on the US Capitol Riots in Washington DC:


January 7, 2021

RIL condemns the violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol yesterday, which undermined our democracy. Make no mistake, white supremacy was on full display. Race was a significant factor in both yesterday’s riots and the events that led up to them. That includes the attempts at voter disenfranchisement being surgically targeted at communities of color, the waving of flags that serve as symbols of hate to these same communities by the rioters, and in the level of response by law enforcement on these egregious acts. The contrast between yesterday’s violence and the peaceful protests that took place over the summer illustrates that America has a long way to go in order to give everyone equal justice under the law. As an organization we stand with marginalized communities including Black, Brown, Indigenous and People of Color, LGBTQIA+, and People with Disabilities within all those groups. We commit to working intersectionally to ensure that one day every member of our community is seen in the fullness of their humanity and that America authentically lives out the idea that all people are created equal with the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

In community,

April Marie Wick
Executive Director

Are you prepared for the next Public Safety Power Shutoff?

RIL is to begin a new initiative to support older adults and people with disabilities during the activation of a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event or other emergency. The goal is to enable them to remain safe while independent in their residences and communities.
