HAF Statement on Capitol Attack

Category: News Releases

In response to the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, HAF's President and CEO Maite Arce released the following statement:

"The diaspora of Latino communities in the United States represents many races, cultures, and languages. Together we share the love of this -- our nation. We respect its laws and deeply appreciate its freedoms and political process where our voice can make the difference. After seeing the dreadful events in our nation’s Capitol, a place that we often convene our community’s leaders to demonstrate to them the power of their voices and the importance of their participation in public policy, we are deeply saddened at the display of disrespect for the very process that has brought us the freedoms we enjoy today. We are constantly reminded that our work in advancing equity is more important than ever."
