On the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Capitol riot, Jan. 6, rallies were held around the tri-state area.

In Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza, the “Defend Democracy” rally drew political leaders such as Attorney General Letitia James and Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso who say they hope the demonstration will send a clear message about their resolve to continue to fight for democracy and voting rights.
