Statement Regarding January 6th, 2021

Posted in CAPS Announcements

CAPS acknowledges and stands against the attack on our Capitol on January 6th. This assault on democracy was horrific and only exacerbated pre-existing tensions from the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing racial injustice. We understand that this negatively affects everyone in different ways, but in particular, affects vulnerable communities who have been marginalized, oppressed, and denied full participation in our democratic processes.

We stand ready to support all members of the Georgetown community, especially those who are struggling with maintaining their mental health. We encourage you to attend to your feelings in balance with your desire to be informed.
