There is a housing crisis

A graphic made in response to the commodification of housing in my community. There are plenty of buildings, homes and apartments around. However, the use of these domiciles for short term rentals have drastically reduced the inventory of housing for people attempting to live in community, and make a home. This is beyond the loss of “affordable” housing for working folks but the inability for people to procure the basic necessity of life which leads to labor shortages and displacement.

This is a version intended to be used everywhere that communities are feeling the pressure of short term rentals on their housing market. I initially released this design in support of an organization, For The Many, working on housing issues, based in my immediate community. You can support their work by purchasing an 11″x 17″ variation of the poster directly from them in their store.

I designed this poster using the hand drawn font, Rise Up, by Josh MacPhee, from the Justseeds Open Type Project. It is available in the Justseeds font pack 3 for non-commercial use!
