How we organize
Together, we organize through local chapters and national working groups linked by a central Organizing Committee (OC) to move towards structural change. Chapters self-organize projects and events of specific concern to their locality and their chapter membership.
Similarly, members come together around shared issues to form working groups that typically meet virtually. Working groups pursue a wide variety of projects and campaigns that have ranged from the development of an anti-capitalist model for architectural education to literature on the Green New Deal to organizer training for architectural workers interested in unionizing their workplace.
Each local chapter is represented at the OC by chapter stewards, and each working group by coordinators. The OC meets virtually on the second Thursday of each month, and meetings are open to all members. These meetings are an opportunity for members to stay informed on what TAL activities are taking place across all scales and locations.
