The College of Fellows is leading an effort to buy a one-page ad in the New York Times in support of Black Lives Matter.

The full page ad would boldly state Black Lives Matter, then list all the names of people within the profession that agree to be printed in support of that statement. There will also be an announcement of the Diversity Advancement Scholarship Fund to encourage its growth and reinforce the industry's belief in the future of the profession.

Over 150 Fellows have already responded in support, but the aim is for at least 500 names. As this initiative gains traction, they would like to broaden support and ask for any architects who would like to support to send along their name to be included going forward.

Architects interested in supporting?

If you are interested or have questions, please contact Jan Wampler. Architects could be FAIA, AIA, firms, and faculty from architectural schools.
