African American women are hugely underrepresented in architecture--just 0.3 percent, fewer than 500 black women, are licensed architects in the U.S.
We're fundraising to create a scholarship specifically for black women in architecture in honor of Desiree V. Cooper, AIA, a DC-area architect who tragically passed in 2015. Help us honor Desiree's memory by creating a pathway to equity in architecture.
Start a fundraiser and share with your network, or donate directly to our cause.
