ILASLA Standing in Solidarity

As landscape architects, we are not only stewards for our environment, but stewards for our communities and our neighbors.

We must listen to and stand in solidarity with our communities of color, and pledge to fight against any actions or systems that perpetuate racial inequity.

We know that landscape architects can do better. We echo the National ASLA and Landscape Architecture Foundation statements through our dedication to ensuring equity, inclusion, and justice are central tenets of our discipline in Illinois and beyond.
