From Our Editors
Street Roots lends the homeless community a voice, showcasing contributors' original stories, poems, and artwork. Through its publication, more than 300 homeless and low-income vendors are given the chance to earn a daily income and improve their self-sufficiency. Each newspaper sells for $1, with the individual vendor keeping $0.75 of each dollar earned. Vendors traverse the Portland area, providing them greater chances to sell their stock and exposing more readers to the alternative newspaper. To help vendors carry their stock, Street Roots provides cloth handle bags to each individual, making transportation easier and keeping the newspapers in better condition for public sale.
