SAY IT WITH - MEdia MOU
Representation matters and media publications have neglected our stories, our contributions, and in some cases erased our existence. With this call for action, we are looking to have media outlets including, digital print, and broadcast to sign a Memorandum of Understanding committing to:
Reporting the percentage of diverse designers, they feature in the publication annually, continued tracking to increase the result by 5% annually until 15% is achieved, and publish the results for accountability.
Pledge to create more content that specifically lists these diverse designers as great or comparable language to how they describe the value and caliber of the other featured people / work in their publication.
Include researching and development of historical content based on diverse designer’s contributions to the built environment.
Pledge to create content about the black experiences to help educate on how architecture is used as a tool to facilitate oppression.
