I'm incredibly excited to announce that the new issue of Megaphone out today is being sold in both Vancouver and Victoria.
Moving On Up: Megaphone expands to Victoria
Victoria’s street paper, Street Newz, recently announced it would stop publishing after 10 years. They asked if Megaphone would step in and ensure Victoria’s vendors continue to have a strong and vibrant magazine to sell. Of course, we said yes.
Being in Victoria makes a lot of sense for Megaphone. With growing poverty and homelessness rates, Vancouver and Victoria share a lot of similarities and struggles. Megaphone will be a voice calling for more affordable housing in both cities.
The issue you’ll see on the streets will be sold in both Vancouver and Victoria. We’ll have a mix of stories about the important social, civic and cultural issues going on in both cities and we'll have stories about the vendors and how selling the magazine helps them in their lives.
Megaphone provides an opportunity to homeless and low-income to earn an income and have a voice. Now, whether you live in Vancouver or Victoria, you'll be able to help make that happen.
Help support Megaphone's expansion in Victoria and make a donation to our vendor program.
In this special issue of Megaphone, you'll read stories about our Victoria vendors, the history of the Victoria Street Newz, how a meal-share program is helping charities in both Vancouver and Victoria, and much more!
Thank you for your support,
