Public Wise is building a publicly accessible online database of individuals and organizations involved in the deadly riot and insurrection at our nation’s Capitol on January 6, 2021. The violent attacks on that day not only targeted members of Congress, but were a vile attempt to silence the voices of all American voters. Public Wise will bring together key partner organizations who are investigating involvement in the insurrection of elected and public officials, police and military personnel, and those who receive their salaries from taxpayer dollars to ensure long term accountability for their actions. The findings by these organizations will be publicly available on our database, which will be discussed during the panel.
Evers is the executive director of American Oversight. Before founding the organization in 2017, he served as senior counsel in the Department of State for oversight and transparency matters, where he advised the Department on responding to congressional, law enforcement, advocacy group, and media investigations. Prior to that, Evers was a litigator at Williams & Connolly LLP and clerked for the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and the Federal District Court of Massachusetts.
