Congressman Andy Kim reflects on the Capitol insurrection one year later

A photograph of New Jersey Congressman Andy Kim cleaning up debris in the Capitol rotunda after last year’s insurrection became one of the most unforgettable images from Jan. 6, 2021. The blue suit he wore that day has even been donated to the Smithsonian Institution, which has been collecting objects in an attempt to document the infamous day in American history. While it’s still hard for the congressman to make sense of what happened a year ago, he sat down with the NJ Spotlight News team to reflect on the power of his simple act of kindness and what he remembered when the mob pushed past police and into the building.
