Docomomo DC Statement on Racial Injustice
As the nation experiences justifiable outrage following the recent murder of George Floyd, Docomomo DC recognizes and is inspired by the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA), who calls upon members of the architectural profession “to condemn racism and take an active role in eliminating the racial biases that account for a myriad of social, economic, and health disparities, and most importantly, result in the loss of human lives – Black lives.”
We recognize the problem that is systemic racism, and Docomomo DC affirms its responsibility and commitment to eliminating racial inequity and injustice. In all of the organization’s work, we pledge to embrace NOMA’s call to action:
Reach out to those who are grieving
Advocate for the disinherited
Vote in every American Election
Engage each human that you meet as YOU would want to be engaged.
