Homes are not hotels

A graphic made in response to the commodification of housing in my community. I modified my original design to suit the campaign of the organization For the Many, who is currently organizing around the issue of housing and how vacation rentals are impacting the economy and availability of this necessity. The use of domiciles for short term rentals have drastically reduced the inventory of housing for people attempting to make a home and live in community. This is beyond the loss of “affordable” housing for working folks, but the inability for people to procure the basic necessity of life, leading to labor shortages and displacement.

You can support their work by purchasing an 11″x 17″ copy of the poster directly from them in their store. Or you could download here, print out and display publicly to show your solidarity.

Poster designed 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!
