Action Requested: AIA School Safety Campaign

AIA Members,

Architects and the power of design can and must be an integral part of addressing our nation’s ongoing school violence problems. This is the message I will deliver to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen today when I testify before the Federal School Safety Commission on behalf of the members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Last week, Jay Brotman, AIA, did the same when he spoke to Secretary Nielsen and other White House cabinet officials about this important issue. And we need your voice to carry this message across the country to your elected officials.

In the coming weeks and months, you will have more opportunities to weigh in directly with elected officials. But, it starts with signing this petition. Once it reaches 50,000 signatures, it will be delivered to elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Therefore, remember to spread the word after you sign it.

Launched last week, the ultimate goal of AIA’s school safety initiative is to protect our students and teachers by advocating for new laws that will prioritize design as part of the solution to school violence. We know architects can help in many more ways too.

But as a first step, join me in signing this petition.

Russell Davidson, FAIA, 2016 AIA President
