Black lives matter. AIGA NWA stands with our Black colleagues, friends, family, and community members. We see you. We hear you. And we love you.
There are many ways we can take an active role in supporting Black people and people of color. Take a moment to research and contribute in whatever way you can. Below, are a few ways we’ve found to work toward’s our chapter’s vision “to create an inclusive, design-driven Northwest Arkansas.”
Most importantly, though: extend support to your Black friends and family in ways that do not require additional emotional labor from them.
