CAPAL Statement on Events of 1/6/21

CAPAL Condemns Insurrection at U.S. Capitol

As an organization committed to public service, we are disgusted and deeply troubled by yesterday’s violent assault on the U.S. Capitol and our country’s democratic process. We denounce these acts of insurrection and condemn all forms of white supremacy, fascism, and far-right extremism.

There is no room for hate in our community. We continue in solidarity with people of color, especially Black Americans, recognizing the patently stark contrast between yesterday’s law enforcement response and the massive show of police force at Black Lives Matter marches this summer.

Our nation requires leaders who defend our democratic institutions and govern inclusively and equitably. CAPAL continues the work of building these leaders and a government that truly represents and serves the diversity of our country.

CAPAL Board of Directors and Staff
