Rep. Jamaal Bowman urges Biden not to let anyone “wash” Jan 6

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (DN.Y.) sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Monday urging him to use his executive powers to recognize January 6, the day rebel mob attacked the US Capitol as National Healing Day.

In a letter, the New York Democrat indicated that the cumulative trauma of the 2020 presidential election, the January 6 uprising and the COVID-19 pandemic has been left unaddressed, and setting a day could help focus healing efforts.

“Donald Trump’s four years in office have been incredibly traumatic for many,” Bowman told HuffPost. He explained that his experience teaching and using restorative practices in the classroom prompted him to propose a nationwide healing initiative.

Bowman also notes that the uprising stemmed from a pandemic of violence that existed long before COVID-19. “By viewing violence as a public health crisis, trauma-aware cognitive behavioral therapy, violence prevention and intervention programs, hospital violence prevention and other innovative solutions can help communities heal,” the letter said.
