After spending a year in Los Angeles, I have been thinking a lot about the inequity in housing availability and informing my own practice around that issue.  When we started brainstorming possible projects for WSU’s Art for Social Change, the idea about the lack of housing for certain populations came to mind.  While we understand that homelessness is a symptom and not necessarily a social justice issue by itself, it does point to the inequities in certain communities and the lack of resources.  While our message is simple: “Everyone Deserves a Home,” our goal is to make people think and ACT in ways that contribute equitably to ALL communities
