For me, advocacy means offering one’s skills for the public good -- so I ardently support the Design Advocacy Group (DAG).
In Philadelphia, we’re lucky for DAG’s focus on equity and excellence in architecture, preservation, and planning. DAG educates us about the preservation of African American history, public spaces reshaped in light of the moral and public health lessons learned during pandemic, and the fulfillment of our shared vision of equitably conceived, publicly accessible, and sustainable waterfronts on the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers.
And DAG informs us through monthly meetings, weekly “DAG Dispatch” newsletters, and “DAG Forum” essays, advocating for our large and diverse public on all aspects of the built environment.
It’s always a pleasure to see the work DAG highlights. I was particularly honored that DAG’s first in-person event since the pandemic was a visit to Learning to See, my photographic exhibition at Temple’s Tyler School of Art and Architecture.
Please support DAG. Visit #DigDeepforDAG today to make your tax-deductible contribution.
