WHAT: Architect Freddie Lynn Jr., AIA, will take part in a listening session before the Federal Commission on School Safety (FCSS) in Montgomery, Alabama, tomorrow, Tuesday, August 28, 2018, to advocate for school design techniques and legislation that will support safer schools in the United States.
Lynn, senior vice president at Goodwyn Mills, and Cawood Inc. (GMC), is appearing before the commission on behalf of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) based on his significant design expertise in the K-12 and higher education arenas. Lynn is the fourth AIA architect to appear before the commission in recent weeks as the Institute presses its case for proposed legislation to help create safer schools.
The AIA initiatives call for (1) establishing an information clearinghouse for state and local school officials that provides an unbiased repository of the resources they need to design safer schools, and (2) federal grants that will provide funding to design them.
Members of the media can watch Lynn’s participation online beginning at 1:00 p.m. CDT; 2:00 p.m. ET, tomorrow.
