Statement Regarding U.S. Capitol Attack
The American Planning Association condemns yesterday's violent attack on the very heart of American democracy. Peaceful dialogue, broad public engagement, and the deliberative process of representative government are essential pillars of our society and cornerstones of planning.
APA President Leo R. Asuncion Jr., AICP, stated:
"These principles, which are central to ethical planning practice, should guide our communities and country as we navigate turbulent times and shared challenges together. We can and must work toward a more cohesive society that is built on mutual respect and opportunity-rich places for all people."
