Advocacy

AIA is the voice of architecture to legislators at the federal, state, and local level. Here you can engage your legislators and use AIA tools and resources to develop skills as an advocate to build power for architects.

Architects work at the leading edge of a $1 trillion construction industry. Architects have always dared to reach higher and set new standards. Our next architectural achievements will be measured by how well they respond to a post-pandemic world, eradicate inequity, fuel economic recovery, eliminate carbon emissions, and nurture individual and community health.

Now is the time for urgent and decisive action on these issues. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is stepping up to the challenge and addressing the needs of our economy, climate, and communities. We aim to tackle the crushing student debt of our members; support disadvantaged businesses; and make real progress to end the systemic racism that has existed for centuries and continues to grip our nation. We promote meaningful policies to enable architects to build better buildings that will sustain a healthy country.
