The national convention of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) is now less than three weeks away!
Thanks to the persistence of our many AIA colleagues — as well as to the longstanding support of thousands of dedicated activists — the world’s largest association of architects will once again be voting on whether to support a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (see page 34 of the AIA’s Delegate Information Booklet
As you might recall, this bold initiative started just two years ago, when we submitted our first resolution calling for the AIA to back a new WTC 7 probe. Though we won just 4% of the vote that year, we decided not to give up. The following year, we nearly tripled our tally to 11%.
We believe we’ll do even better this year. In fact, it is our goal to achieve at least another threefold increase and win 33% of the vote (if not win it outright)
— which we’re certain will pave the way to winning a majority and getting the resolution passed within the next year or two.
When we accomplish this sea change, it will send shockwaves through the building industry and beyond. That’s why we’re counting on you to support this resolution by helping us raise the final $4,000 of our $10,000 budget by next Monday
With your generous backing, we’ll be able to send our powerful WTC 7 mailer
to 2,500 AIA leaders before the big vote on April 26th. Your support will also enable us to pay for six of our staff members and volunteers to attend the four-day convention in Orlando.
So please chip in what you can today
. If you give $20 or more ($25 for non-U.S. residents), we’ll also send you
a copy of the mailer!
Thank you for stepping up in the name of 9/11 Truth and urging the architecture community to do what it should have done over a decade ago. With you behind us, we’ll surely get there.
