AAFA Rebukes Efforts to Disrupt American Democracy

January 6, 2021 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

The American Apparel & Footwear Association is saddened and disturbed by the violent assault on our democracy and democratic values.

AAFA fully supports the U.S. Constitution and our democratic institutions.

Today’s scenes may have begun as peaceful protest, but quickly escalated into a direct attack on our nation’s core beliefs and way of life when an armed mob stormed the Capitol. This was unacceptable; it was crime against the United States and its people.

It is long past time for us to unite and support the peaceful transition of power. 

We have a great deal of work ahead of us to heal our nation and our economy, and our democratic institutions must be fully defended so they can be fully deployed to support that work.
