NASW-SC Statement on Recent Events:

After four years of turmoil and devastating policies, the unimaginable happened. The attack on our government on January 6, which left five dead and could have cost the lives of our Vice President and several Congressmen and women, appears to have been launched by the rhetoric of President Trump himself, with the encouragement of his family and political allies.

NASW-SC stands firmly against this violence and attack on our democratic process. Our country is built on civil discourse and dissent, advocacy, and debate. Yes, we can disagree on how to address the issues we face - but we must recognize the escalation of conflict and divisiveness are ineffective and dangerous. We strongly and unquestionably condemn the use of violence and inciteful rhetoric.
