racial justice resources
In 2020, we are witnessing an unprecedented heightened global awareness of the need for racial justice. This heightened awareness comes as we bear witness to continual assaults on black communities in America which are then followed by continual cries for justice, reform, equity, inclusion. As the AIA National Board statement on systemic racial injustice affirms, we are committed to efforts to ensure that our profession is part of the solution that finally dismantles systemic racial injustice and violence -- the legacy of one of the United States’ original sins, slavery.
This list of resources will grow and evolve over time. It is not intended to be finite or all-encompassing, but rather it is a step towards promoting awareness and encouraging action. The organizations listed are already combating racial injustice and we encourage all to research further, donate, lend support, self-educate, and take action. Join the efforts to dismantle systemic racism and violence.
