Addressing racial injustice in architecture and the BSA
Two weeks ago, a renewed fire spread through this country and in Boston to solve the injustices of racism due to yet another series of unjust killings within the black community. We vowed to be anti-racist in support of Black Lives Matter. We now call upon the BSA community to address the systemic racism within the design profession and our organization.
Update: BSA Offices Open with Limited Hours
To support public efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the BSA offices will be open for business transactions only with limited hours. Members may visit to pick up AIA Contract Documents and ARE study materials between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM every Wednesday and Thursday through the summer.

A Message from the BSA on Racism
We ask our members, allies, and friends to move forward in solidarity with empathy and support. When designers come together to change the systems that perpetuate violence and cruelty, we will harness our energies to create more just, equitable and inclusive communities.
