AIA LA & AIA CA Endorse a Yes Vote on Prop 16

AIA CA & AIA LA Endorse a YES Vote California Proposition 16

The AIA California Board of Directors voted at its September meeting to officially support Proposition 16.

Proposition 16, if approved by the voters in November, allows state and local governments, and state universities, to enact affirmative action policies for hiring, contracting, and admission decisions.

The AIA CA Board has held several conversations on racial justice and the need to take steps to empower those who have traditionally been marginalized in society, and the profession. The support for Proposition 16 is a statement of AIA CA’s commitment to support racial and gender equality.

More information on Proposition 16 can be found on the Yes on Proposition 16 website.
