IMPACT
Emory student reflects on experience at U.S. Capitol during Electoral College vote certification
Appearing in a viral photo purported to show aides securing Electoral College votes, Virginia Brown explains the image was actually taken before the violence and urges "the best way forward is to uphold our democratic values."

 

LEADERSHIP
