NASW strongly condemns pro-Trump riots at U.S. Capitol

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) strongly condemns the unlawful storming of the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. Their violent, riotous behavior is seditious and forced the evacuation of Congress and halted the declaration of Joe Biden’s presidential victory.

Trust that the guardrails of democracy will hold and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in on January 20th. NASW calls on all elected officials to condemn this unlawful attack on our democracy.
