Submitted by the Event Organizer
Celebrate the Street Sheet’s 25th anniversary and the launch of the redesigned Street Sheet with the Coalition on Homelessness at Harrington’s Pub (in the Tenderloin) on Thursday, December 11, 2014.
After 25 years of publication, the Coalition on Homelessness is redesigning the Street Sheet to increase readership, with the goal of creating more awareness of the issues of homelessness, lack of housing and poverty. They are celebrating the Street Sheet´s 25th anniversary, and you will have the opportunity to see the redesigned version before it gets published.
> Please note this event is at Harringtons on Larkin, not on Front Street as was originally posted.
The Street Sheet is a street paper published by the Coalition on Homelessness. Founded in 1989, it is the oldest continuously published street paper of its kind in the United States.
Every month 32,000 papers are monthly sold and distributed by more than 250 self-employed vendors in San Francisco, usually in exchange for a one-dollar donation, as an alternative to panhandling.
The Street Sheet focuses on the problems of homelessness, poverty and lack of housing in San Francisco. The Street Sheet publishes well-researched, hard hitting news that comes directly from homeless people themselves. It facilitates the publishing of unfiltered voices of homeless people through vibrant artwork, poetry, reporting, storytelling, comics and more.
