We are saddened by the events of January 6th, 2021. We condemn both the sedition that led to the incursion on Capitol Hill and the assault itself. The imbalance of response by authorities to a siege on our government and the demonstrations for social justice in the Spring of 2020 is a clear expression of the inequality we stand against. GCE aspires that the United States live into its highest ideals of liberty and justice for all and that we be a global model and partner for equality and democracy. Our students work individually and collectively to advocate for the promise of our nation.
