AIA|LA + SoCal NOMA: Citizen Architect
June 23, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm PDT
A Town Hall with AIA|LA and SoCal NOMA
Citizen Architect – Actions to Reach Equality and Diversity
What are the actions that we as organizations, firms, architects, designers and students of design should take to achieve racial equality in our field, our communities and our civic institutions? AIA|LA and SoCal NOMA invite you to join us on Tuesday, June 23 to contribute your steps, ideas, and opinions.
Leaders from both organizations will provide a (very) quick review of our previous Town Hall and Listening Session on Racial Injustice. Then, participants will split up into three breakout groups addressing different areas to change: (1) Creating Opportunities for Individuals within the Profession (2) Support Communities through Architecture (3) Advocating for Changes at the Civic Level.
Each breakout session will be moderated by leadership from SoCal NOMA and AIA|LA. After these forty minute working sessions, we’ll reconvene as a body to update all on each working group’s list of actions. These steps will be used to inform a framework for change by both organizations.
We look forward to working with you to implement steps that make our profession and neighborhoods more equitable for all and will lead to flourishing individuals and communities.
