Advocacy is the Most Important Thing AIA Philadelphia Does, -- but We Need Your Voice

We need architects with experience working in Philadelphia, as well as architects who have innovative ideas or best practices we can learn from other cities. We need these architects to engage with us by testifying before City Council, attending City Hall Advocacy Day, and collaborating with City agencies to design a better public realm. Together, we can design and build a more sustainable, equitable, and prosperous Philadelphia!  

This Advocacy Committee page will be a place to share resources and connect with one another on our initiatives. We are looking for leaders to join us. Our group is open to AIA members and non-AIA members alike. Join today for advocacy related updates, events, and for calls to take action when appropriate.
