Our Friends Speak About Street Roots

Between the FYI-texts: 'Did you see this in Street Roots?', scrolling by the happy #NewPaperFriday selfies on social media, and picking up the weekly with my groceries — the Street Roots experience is totally integrated into my Portland life. We are a lucky city to have the love, dedication, and tenacity for good news and better community that Street Roots brings us every day of the year.
