CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF RADIAN!
Founded in 2013, Radian is celebrating 10 years of community, partnership, imagination, co-design, accountability, and transformation! We are so grateful for our supporters and community partners who have made this past decade meaningful and memorable.
Radian is a women-founded and -led architecture and urban design nonprofit with the mission to advance social equity in the built environment. Radian envisions a world where residents, who have been traditionally underrepresented in design and planning, have the agency, power, and resources they need to shape their own communities and neighborhoods.
Radian was founded in 2013, and our work is based on the acknowledgement that discriminatory policies and institutionalized racism, woven throughout the built environment, have created gross inequities in health, wealth, and power that have compounded over time. To confront this reality, we center residents' expertise and lived experiences through community partnerships and design processes that are inclusive, collaborative, and responsive.
Radian partners with trusted community groups and leaders in neighborhoods that have been historically excluded in design and planning. Our projects support BIPOC, low-income families, immigrants and refugees, our unhoused neighbors, and other groups that are vulnerable to involuntary displacement.
In 2023, we worked on:
The 2030 Colorado Preservation Plan: Expanding the Narrative
The SOS Launch Kit: A Technical Assistance Guide to Developing Places of Belonging
The 303 Artway Heritage Trail
The RNO Equity Toolkit
The Colorado Zoning Atlas
Design and Technical Assistance for Be The Change Community School
BUILD Community Coworking Space//BUILD Scholarship Program
And many other more!
We couldn’t do any of this important work without our partners, and that includes YOU!
Starting today, you can be a part of Colorado’s biggest giving day of the year, and support our community work through a donation of any size now through December 5th.
