In our first issue of 2014, Megaphone features articles, photoessays, and letters to the editor from graduates of our fall Community Journalism 101 class. Speaking from their own perspectives as low-income, indigenous, artists, we share the work of these newly trained scribes, writing on issues ranging from bike paths, to safe crack smoking kits, river pollution, and much more.
