100+ Civil Rights, Racial Justice, Labor, and Grassroots Groups Demand Trump Be Immediately Removed from Office, Co-Conspirators Held Accountable
January 14, 2021

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SiX Joined 100+ Civil Rights, Racial Justice, Labor, and Grassroots Groups to Demand Trump Be Immediately Removed from Office, Co-Conspirators Held Accountable

Following the insurrection by armed white vigilantes against the U.S. Capitol on Treason Day (January 6th, 2021) encouraged by Donald Trump as a way to stop the certification of the results of the presidential election, more than 110 civil rights, racial justice, labor, and grassroots groups issued the following statement:

“January 6th, 2021 should forever be remembered as Treason Day. A day when a sitting president who has done everything in his power to overturn his loss unleashed an angry mob of armed white vigilantes inside of our Capitol, threatening our government, including the very Republican leaders complicit in this attack.”

Trump may have lost access to his social media accounts, but still retains the full powers of the presidency. He is dangerous and must be removed from office today through the 25th amendment or impeachment. 

“His Republican co-conspirators, from Senators and House Members to state legislators, who fed, fueled and fomented these attacks on our democracy must also be removed or resign. All those who participated in this insurrection, especially those who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, must be investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law once Donald Trump is removed”

“On January 20, our democracy will prevail. But only thanks to the organizers, activists, and election officials in communities across this country who protected the results. We have just faced one of the greatest threats to our democracy ever. To meet the moment, President-elect Biden must make reforming our political system from the ground up a top priority on Day One.”
