Homeless Bill of Rights Campaign
Unionized Adjunct Faculty
San Francisco Art Institute along with CCA, and Mills College have unionized the adjunct or visiting faculty. This is part of a national trend to pushback against the increasing moves to destroy teaching as a profession. SEIU 1021 in the Bay Area is leading the organizing. We've staged several poster printing events as part of that organizing.
San Franscisco Poster Syndicate
The San Francisco Poster Syndicate is a loose organization of faculty, students and former students at the San Francisco Art Institute formed in 2014. We make political prints for specific issues. We grew out of the crisis around higher education– student debt, the abuse of adjunct faculty in higher education. But 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.
Congress acted to extend the student loan interest rates during the summer of 2013. But the bipartisan way in which it was passed can only mean one thing - it's not going to be good for students. As the interest rates rise on 10 year treasuries so too will student federal loan interest. This is a disaster looming. Students at the San Francsico Art Institute and Art Hazelwood collaborated on these posters. The Library of Congress acquired the set in the summer of 2013.
US Post Office Closures
Congress gave a poison pill to the Postal Service requiring pensions be put aside for workers not even born yet. This burden is being used as an excuse to privatize and destroy the postal service. Everyone from Dianne Feinstein's husband Richard Blum to rightwingnut Darryl Issa is in on the game. Organizers in Berkeley are fighting back as the Berkeley Post Office has been chosen for sale (by Richard Blum's company for the benefit of Richard Blum).
