Statement by Peter Exley, FAIA, 2021 President and Robert Ivy, FAIA, CEO

Yesterday’s guilty verdict provides a small measure of justice. In the year since George Floyd was murdered, the nation and the world deepened and recommitted to having the difficult and necessary conversations needed to end systemic racial injustice in all its forms. This one act of justice is an opportunity for reflection, and for some, provides a sense of hope.
