As AIA Seattle reflects on our pursuit of racial justice, we are committing to a process of transparency in what measurable actions we are taking. As a member-led organization, we are establishing this evolving list for the sake of mutual accountability — so you may see what we are doing, and tell us where we should be moving in the future. As we establish new protocols, goals, and activities, we will add them to the top of this list.

AIA Seattle’s Young Architects Forum and Urban Design Forum present Towards a Region of Short Distances – a design competition that is live now! This competition seeks ideas and proposals for incrementally reshaping our region’s automobile-centric areas towards walking and transit. The competition is open to anyone, and we hope to showcase the work in a publication and open a discussion about the future of Seattle’s development.

Our Public Policy Board is taking a critical look at our advocacy positions and practices to better incorporate diverse voices, and amplify the work of BIPOC community groups. We will add a race and social justice section to all our policy position statements and develop a formal policy statement on race and social justice in the built environment. We will focus these efforts around our top priority issues – housing and climate – but will apply this lens to all issues we work on, including transportation, homelessness, and more. Contact Kirsten Smith for more info.
