Welcome To Street Sheet

It's the word on the street

Feel the Hate

Leave a comment

It sucks to be hated. Nobody likes it: Not queers, not women, not yuppies, not people of color, not homeless people. The recent hate-mongering columns (in article drag) by C.W. Nevius in the San Francisco Chronicle have angered, frightened, or insulted a lot of homeless people, friends, and allies. To make matters worse, the Chronicle has utterly failed to put a check on calls for violence in its reader comments to articles and blog entries. Some the Coalition’s friends and allies have written letters to or about Nevius and the Chronicle, which they’ve asked us to post here. Expect to see more over the next few days.

The STREET SHEET is the oldest continuously published street news paper in the United States. Organizationally, it is the public education and outreach tool of the Coalition on Homelessness. Every month, the STREET SHEET reaches 32,000 readers through over 200 homeless or low-income vendors. Our vendors are charged nothing for the papers they receive, and keep all money they earn through STREET SHEET distribution.
