We grieve as we witness the horrific patterns of racism, bias, and white privilege in our country. We denounce the senseless murders of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, Ahmaud Arbery in Glynn County, Georgia, and countless others at the hands of a cruel, violent, and unjust system. We condemn the wrongful acts that are hidden and swept aside, without recourse, without change.
These crimes, and the routine transgressions against Black lives must end. The protests bring into sharp focus the pain our communities of color face every single day. The emotional, physical, and social damage is profound. We must examine ourselves, listen and hear, and work harder with our communities of color to build a better society.
KieranTimberlake is committed to building a more just and equitable world. We call upon the architecture and design community nationwide to do the same.
