Sociologists for Women in Society has issued a statement condemning the events at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021. Read the full article here.
As an intersectional, anti-racist, feminist professional organization dedicated to promoting social justice and dismantling intersecting systems of oppression, Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS) adds its voice to the growing number of organizations that strongly condemn the insurrection by white supremacist domestic terrorists last week. We hold the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, responsible for inciting this atrocity. We call upon our elected officials to hold him accountable for his actions. We support that the 25th Amendment be invoked, or the immediacy of impeachment proceedings. Additionally, we join other organizations in demanding a full investigation and the termination of any Capitol Police involved in aiding the domestic terrorists and the expulsion of any lawmakers who incited this violence through spreading lies/conspiracy theories about the 2020 Election.
