San Francisco Poster Syndicate

San Francisco Poster Syndicate grew out of the crisis around higher education– student debt, and the abuse of adjunct faculty in higher education. We branched out to other movements; the struggle for a living wage for fast food workers; protection of homeless people from discriminatory laws; the death penalty in Pakistan. We are a loose, evolving group of artists, activists, and union organizers, many associated with the San Francisco Art Institute.

SFPS creates posters and prints them live at actions, and events, makes work for allies in political struggle, hands out posters for free at protests, offers a spirit of generosity in the act of giving away something for free, and tries to make political action more enjoyable. We also have worked on murals.
