ART Statement on January 6th Attack on the Capitol

Tuesday, February 09, 2021 11:10 AM | Anonymous

The board of the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York (ART) has released a statement condemning the attack on the United States Capitol by those seeking to block the certification of electors in the recent presidential election and the violence that resulted in five deaths.

We are well aware that the events that unfolded on January 6th are not without precedent; archives of the United States bear witness to many instances of violence perpetrated by those with white supremacist views seeking to wield political power. As an organization representing a diversity of cultural and governmental institutions, collections, and archivists in the New York metropolitan area, ART affirms our commitment to upholding democratic values towards the promise of a more just and free society.
