The following is a request from InterIm for graphic designs for the Fair Housing Education and Outreach Campaign:

With funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP), InterIm CDA announces it is participating in a national campaign to raise awareness of housing discrimination against individuals based on their national origin and to educate individuals about their rights under the Fair Housing Act. In addition to national outreach efforts led by our national partners, National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders (NALCAB) and National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development (National CAPACD), InterIm CDA is also conducting local education and outreach efforts through its social media platforms and local networks. To enhance the organization outreach efforts, it is looking for graphic designs created by local artists that communicate the theme of its campaign, reflect the cultural and linguistic diversity of our community, and can be disseminated through social media to raise awareness of fair housing rights and protections for individuals.

The theme of the campaign is “Fair Housing. Shared Opportunity in Every Community.” InterIm CDA hopes the campaign is able to increase awareness of fair housing rights and how to report discrimination in the community. Moreover, the campaign will focus on educating individuals who may face housing discrimination based on their national origin. Format of the design work is open, but all submitted designs should be easily shared via Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms. InterIm CDA says they encourage design submissions in Chinese and/or Vietnamese as well. The artist whose design is selected will receive a $1,000 honorarium.

The deadline for submission is by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, September 25, 2016. All graphic design work has to be in high resolution. In addition to the graphic work, please attached a short biography and a short description about the graphic work and how it will help meet the goals of the campaign.

Visit InterIm CDA’s websiteFacebook or Twitter page for more details about the campaign. For questions related to the campaign, please contact Tom Im ([email protected]).
