This morning, Nick was honored to join Portland’s First Lady Nancy Hales, Multnomah County Chair Marissa Madrigal, Multnomah County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury, and other community leaders at the first Street Roots Family Breakfast.
Street Roots is among our community’s most thoughtful and informed voices on issues of housing, homelessness and social justice. At times they are strong supporters of our work, at other times they are forceful critics.
Street Roots — published biweekly here in Portland— has been Portland's leading publication addressing homelessness and poverty since 1998. The newspaper is a platform for people experiencing homelessness and poverty, giving them a voice in our community’s political and social dialogue. Not only that, Street Roots creates income opportunities for vendors.
Special thanks to Street Roots' Executive Director Israel Bayer for convening this great event.
Don’t forget to pick up a copy of the paper from your local Street Roots vendor.
