CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!!!
The AMP Zine deadline is August 18th by email or postmarked by August 15th!
The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is making a zine! The zine is part of the
Narratives of Displacement project and aims to share individual and
community stories, thoughts and feelings surrounding the gentrification of San
Francisco and the Bay Area and the resulting flood of evictions.
Reflections on home, community and displacement are welcome.
Be creative! Entries can be as small as one word or a tiny doodle, and up
to 800 words. Potential submission formats include: poem, short story,
essay, thought, doodle, sketch, painting, comic, print, stamp, quote, joke,
collage, pretty much anything you can or cannot think of.
The zine is open to anyone who has something to express related to these
issues, but we would especially love to see contributions from folks who
have been personally impacted in one way or another by gentrification
Please specify if you would like to remain anonymous. Otherwise we would
love to credit you for your work in the zine. We will not edit submissions,
but we do have a particular political and artistic vision for the zine that
some pieces may not fit into. However, our goal is to be as open and
accessible as possible, especially as a platform for typically marginalized
voices and stories.
Questions and submissions can be sent to ampzine(a)riseup.net and/or
Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, 558 Capp Street, SF, CA, 94110.

Some background on AMP, from our website:
The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is a data-visualization, data analysis,
and digital storytelling collective documenting the dispossession of San
Francisco Bay Area residents. The project seeks to de-isolate those
displaced and act as a tool for collective resistance.
We use maps and digital storytelling to make the often invisible processes
of eviction, displacement and gentrification clearly seen.
We have released multiple maps, including our:
- Eviction Pledge Map, where you can look up an address to determine its
eviction history, and pledge never to rent or buy from a landlord or
speculator who has profited off of displacement.
- Our Crowdsourced Map of Loss and Displacement, where you can share your
story, photo, of video on a geolocation platform, and add to the map.
- Time-lapse maps of Ellis Act Evictions and all No-Fault Evictions that
have taken place since 1997. We have also mapped evictions of seniors and
people with disabilities over the last three years, with information about
the landlords and speculators who have displaced them.
- Map of serial evictions.
- Map of income inequality.
- Map of no-fault evictions surrounding tech bus stops.
- And more!
