In response to the shocking events that occurred on January 6th in Washington DC, the Faculty Executive Council of the Maricopa Community Colleges Faculty Association endorses the following statement by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP):
Assault on the Capitol
The AAUP is appalled by the assault on the US Capitol today. The current administration’s attacks on truth, inflammatory rhetoric, and baseless objections to the result of a free and fair election have now led to violence, highlighting the precarious state of our democracy. We look forward to working with the new administration, Senate, and House to strengthen our democracy and to strengthen our education system, a key underpinning of a functional democracy.
