Are you a:: Organization

This organization or cause is a 501(c)3 non-profit: Yes

What community or cause does your organization serve?: Human Rights define a spectrum of value for projects in the built environment, from plans and buildings that help disadvantaged people realize their basic rights, to those that actively violate the rights of life and liberty. ADPSR advocates for a society where investments are made in buildings that lift people up, and where willful human rights abuses are a thing of the past. We believe that the design professions can help provide leadership to achieve this just, peaceful, and equitable world

Project description: We have worked with a designer to come up with some wireframes for a new website flow, and are now looking for a visual designer and web developer to implement the wireframes and create a new website. We would like to simplify the website and migrate it over to an easier to use interface. We are actively working on protest campaigns against many of the new federal government's proposals (prison reform, anti-border wall, etc). We have numerous campaigns that need attention, but our website is lacking functionality and design to draw people in. ADPSR can be a really strong voice in the conversation on human rights issues, but we need a better visual platform. Last year the NYT wrote an article on our ethics on prison architecture campaign, and we had 20,000 supporters on our campaign.

How will this creative work help you overcome challenges or meet specific goals?: The volunteer's work will be immensely appreciated. It will allow ADPSR to grow into a thriving organization. It will attract more members, and then allow ADPSR to get involved in more campaigns for the social good. It will update and bring a fresh perspective to an organization that formed in 1982 to promote nuclear disarmament and is now tackling important issues of today.
