           Robert Kennedy said: "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope." If this is so, than the passion and commitment of those featured in this issue may end up causing a tidal wave of optimism and social justice in the built environment. The struggle for social justice is as old as the stars and stripes, endeavored by those compelled to improve the lot of others. To designers who’s work creates ripples of hope, BD salutes you. Adelante!
