That’s ok. Sometimes our vendors get a bit outspoken or drown out in the noise of our urban Philly streets – but they’re increasingly becoming a prominent voice for local information. As an outlet, One Step Away is dedicated to doing its part in making our city and world a better place for everyone. Join us. Buy a paper. Support a neighbor.
In One Step Away’s current issue we shared The Contributor’s (Nashville, TN) coverage on the Women’s March “Why we Marched – One Year Later”, featuring interviews with women at the marches, how to get involved, and a timeline of accomplishments over the year. We also showcase the International Street Paper Network in honor of #VendorWeek, with vendors from Australia, Denmark, Greece, Taiwan, the UK, and Chicago, USA. A personal narrative by Ted Goldman of Tgoldmanphotography.com, “Looking for William”, shares how easily those living on the streets can disappear – sharing his story interviewing a One Step Away vendor. Finally, we say thank you to Portland, OR’s Street Roots Director Israel Bayer, after 15 years of advocacy for the homeless.
And, as always, our vendors share stories, artwork, poems, comics, and puzzles – including #FlyEaglesFly Eagles Nation by Keith Barbour.
