ArchiteXX, alongside the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation (BWAF) and Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW), is engaging across the country and building a coalition in response to the consequences Dobbs has for our industry. As creators and citizens, we recognize the power of design to uphold our values in physical representation and support of an economy centered around ethically sourced materials and socially responsible practices.
The AIANY Women in Architecture is pleased to have our new Advisory Board Member, Angelique Pierre, facilitate a conversation about advocating for the right to bodily autonomy for all and how to exercise our power of collaboration, ingenuity, and strategic planning to ensure our practice upholds our value propositions. We invite you to learn more about the coalition’s mission to promote continued awareness and educate our communities in productive ways to help people make informed choices and advocate for action to safeguard reproductive rights for all people.
