Part of a seven poster portfolio on housing issues produced by Strategic Actions for a Just Economy (SAJE), Self-Help Graphics and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics. Artist Statement: Brown and black fists join in community solidarity against corporate interests and specifically corporate control of affordable housing. Portfolio Description: Seven diverse graphic artists collaborated with Los Angeles housing activists to produce posters that reflect the vision, values, and goals of efforts to protect the community from displacement. This effort involved collaboration with Strategic Actions for a Just Economy (SAJE), Self-Help Graphics, a nationally acclaimed community arts program in East Los Angeles, and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, the largest collection of political posters in the country. Artists pulled their prints at Self-Help's graphic studio and got support in using the seriograph medium from master printer Joe Alpuche. The results were incorporated into several national and international archives, as well as the We Shall Not Be Moved exhibit, which helped inspire the project, curated by the Center for the Study of Political Graphics. The project was supported by a Rockefeller PACT grant (Partnerships Affirming Community Transformation).
