To AIA South Dakota members and associates, partners, and citizens of South Dakota,
We mourn with our neighbors in Minnesota. We mourn with all states and communities who have been affected by these injustices in the last days, weeks, years, and lifetimes. There are no words to express the sorrow felt for those who are in pain, anguish, and are suffering by the systemic racial injustices within our country.
AIA South Dakota supports those who are speaking out and working towards an equitable future for all. As an organization, we endeavor not to repeat past design practices that have contributed to systemic racial injustice, and we vow to do more by working with local leaders to improve the health, safety, welfare and equitable future for our citizens.
We will continue to promote design solutions that encourage equity in the built environment and celebrate the diversity within our South Dakota communities and beyond.
Educate yourself. Be involved. Stay involved.
