Megaphone's 100th issue is hot off the presses and in our vendors hands this week! We know, we don't look a day over 20, and our content is just as fresh as the day we started (Just don't mention the wrinkles and grays. We're sensitive.)
We celebrate our landmark issue by giving props to the strong network of North American and international street papers that have made street news one of the strongest forms of printed media around today. From Nashville to Sweden, Japan to South Africa, street news offers low-income and homeless people dignified work and an outlet for their voice, and offers our customers strong, independent journalism and an insider's perspective on poverty, homelessness, and drug addiction.
Also in this issue, we look at the education barriers facing Aboriginal youth in Vancouver, the Carnegie Newsletter publishes what could be their final issue after 25 years, and local non-profit film company Reel Changes promotes social justice issues through film and charity donations. Issue 100 includes all of our regulars, too, like David Suzuki, vendor profiles, event listings, poetry from our writing workshops, and more.
