January 20th

January 12, 2017

JA Friends,

We will be offering our staff time off on January 20 to enable all who work here to mark the day the way they see fit, be it active protest, quiet reflection, or volunteering time to an organization that reflects their values. The great people we work with endeavor every day to create humane , welcoming and beautiful spaces. That takes not only skill and imagination, but also optimism.

The well of optimism may have been drawn down a bit lately, so we are taking this opportunity to recharge it and get ready to do what we can as designers and citizens to improve our world.
