Sacramento, CA – The Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Association (APAPA) released the following statement on the violence that descended on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, when an unruly mob raided and ransacked the sacred halls of our democracy in a violent protest of a “rigged election,” as purported by President Trump on multiple tweets and other occasions.

Multiple mainstream media have attributed the senseless acts of violence and desecration of the Capitol building directly to President Donald Trump. Serious discussions are taking place to either invoke the 25th Amendment or to initiate congressional impeachment proceedings to remove him from his office. APAPA trusts our democratic process and has faith that members of Congress will make the right choice for America to restore peace and unity to our country. 

APAPA believes that America is a noble experiment where law and democracy rule, where diversity is valued, and all human beings are treated equally. APAPA will not give up hope in our democracy. Furthermore, we pledge to work diligently to help steer our country in the right direction where law and order along with democracy are valued and restored.
