Moritz alum Melissa Wasser (’17), who is currently a Policy Counsel for the Project on Government Oversight, was recently quoted in an article by the Los Angeles Times titled, “Shocking mob attack on Capitol reflects array of security failures, infuriating Congress.”

“As a person of color, yesterday’s events just really showed me that police know when not to use force,” she said. “Why were they not prepared? What kind of planning went into this?”
