More Street Roots Programs:

Extra! Extra!

Good cheer is in the air as we head into the holiday season! Vendors are feeling it, too, crowding the office with the latest edition of Street Roots, ready to hit the pavement selling. Here’s what’s coming your way this morning:

Five from the line with Damian Lillard: An interview with the Trail Blazers’ new guard about staying grounded in the high-pressure world of the NBA.

Sex, lies and homelessness: An in-depth look at the connection between sexual assault and homelessness, and what local advocates are doing to create a nationwide awareness plan.

Defending Rachel Corrie: An interview with Craig and Cindy Corrie about keeping the legacy of their daughter alive, nearly a decade since her death.

The Judah Explosion: An interview with Judah Bauer of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

Plus lots of great poetry from our vendors and the streets, and commentary from the Partnership for Safety and Justice in light of Portland’s adjustments to police strategy and the mentally ill. Don’t forget to tuck a buck for Street Roots before you head today. And remember to share a smile with you friendly neighborhood SR vendor. Thank you!
