January Newsletter: MAPACA Board's Statement on the Capitol Insurgence of January 6

This is a special edition of the MAPACA newsletter.

A statement from the Board of MAPACA

As our Code of Conduct affirms, “MAPACA is committed to providing and fostering an inclusive and harassment-free environment.” Our Code of Conduct also affirms our devotion to civil discourse and productive dialogue. As such, we condemn the recent insurrection, including all acts of violence, intimidation, and sedition, by white supremacists at the United States Capitol. We further condemn any views or values in opposition to those of inclusivity, equity, and respect for all people.

As scholars committed to the honest and civil exchange of ideas, we must insist on the integrity of institutions charged with upholding democracy in the United States. We call for those involved in the campaign of misinformation that pervades our current cultural ecosystem to be held accountable. We urge American leadership to act swiftly and with purpose in response to the current crisis.

MAPACA remains committed to setting an example of academic and personal integrity in its affairs. As a community of scholars, artists, teachers, practitioners, and students, we must continue to do our part as individuals and as a community to dismantle white supremacy in all forms it takes. We thank you for your continued participation in our efforts to maintain a diverse, open, and just academic community.
