I am currently the editor of the Street Sheet, a biweekly publication of the Coalition on Homelessness, San Francisco. Founded in 1989, the Street Sheet is the oldest continuously-published street news paper in the United States. Organizationally, it is the Coalition's public outreach tool and reaches some 17,000 readers every two weeks to educate them about the causes of homelessness. For the vendors of the Street Sheet, it serves as a source of income and an alternative to panhandling. This will be published twice a month, serving 250 vendors.
Street Sheet distribution: Monday-Friday, 9am-12 noon
The Coalition on Homelessness was formed in 1987 to foster the active participation of homeless and low-income San Francisco residents and front-line staff in the struggle for economic and social justice. Through an integrated approach that combines outreach, peer support, leadership development, public education, advocacy, and community organizing, the COH works to defend homeless and low-income people from attacks on their rights and their persons, while advocating for permanent solutions to homelessness that take into account not only poverty’s devastating effects, but also its root causes.
Extensive peer outreach is at the heart of everything we do: We do not bring our agendas to poor and homeless people; they bring their agendas to us, and our efforts on their behalf (on both personal and political fronts) are shaped by their input and active involvement.
