Washington Chapter Issues Statement on Racial Inequality
The Washington Chapter of the ASLA issued a statement regarding their social perspective on racial injustice and inequality. In their account, they put forth the idea of creating spaces designed to prioritize fair and democratic offerings to aid communities of different races. The chapter believes that the road towards progress begins with having discussions and the exchange of ideas, and therefore, they are encouraging community participation. "We invite all members to participate in the dialogues and actions required to progress and evolve our chapter. This change will not come from one but from all. Whether it is through volunteering to bolster our efforts and reach, or simply through sharing your thoughts and creative ideas regarding inclusion, we want to hear from you."
On another note, the Washington chapter has announced that they will be putting together LARE study groups. Along with the help of the Emerging Professionals Committee, the group sessions will begin remotely on June 23. They are looking for individuals who are planning on taking the examination in August. The hope is to get 3-4 individuals together in a group and have people who have previously taken the test to provide insight into their experiences.
They are asking for signups by June 19, and you can do so in the following link: https://forms.gle/aAGAaSzWFbrSUB1r7
