As an architectural company located in and doing business in Minneapolis and St. Paul, DJR is aware that many of our neighborhoods have been affected by the recent events that have damaged many buildings. We recognize that buildings are not as important as people, but that the people in these communities need these buildings to live, work, and enjoy life. We also recognize that there are larger, more systemic problems that do not allow communities of color to gain full and equal benefits from their built environments. In the short term, we would like to offer our services to the local small business owners and non-profit organizations that have been affected by the recent damage and need to rebuild as quickly as possible to sustain their businesses and organizations. We are able to assist with the city planning and permitting processes; are able to help others understand the various codes and regulations; and are able to provide standard architectural services. In the long term, we will continue to pay attention to the communities by listening and learning how we are able to be part of changing a broken system so that architecture and design will help communities of color to thrive.•••#LakeStreet #MyLakeStreet #WeLoveLakeStreet #VisitLakeStreet #djrarchitecture #change
