We, the DC Special Education Cooperative, detest the violent insurrection that transpired in the US Capitol Complex this week. Plainly worded, we view these anti-democratic acts for what they are: domestic terrorism. As a hub for teachers, school leaders, and charter staff that seek to improve educational outcomes for students with disabilities, we implore our network to join us, especially during a time where over 90% of DC students in special education are Black, in condemning the ongoing attempts at blocking the progress we are making politically, socially, and economically within marginalized communities. We send our wishes for safety to everyone in D.C.
