On Wednesday afternoon, violent protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol as members of Congress met to certify the 2020 election outcome. The mob intended to block President-elect Joe Biden’s win, despite it being a fair and legitimate election.
The Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA) condemns this dangerous and unlawful behavior and those who enable it.
As a trade association, we spend countless hours on Capitol Hill, advocating on behalf of our members and industry, and collaborating with legislators from both sides of the political aisle. We welcome the differences of opinion and the challenge of persuasion that we regularly encounter through the democratic process. However, the violence and chaos we experienced on Wednesday goes against our most fundamental American values. We are hopeful that the transition of power will be peaceful from here on out and that the Biden Administration will provide opportunities for healing and national unity.
