Our Friends Speak About Street Roots

By giving a platform for voices that too often go unheard, Street Roots is a vital part of Portland life. When people fall through the cracks, they too often become invisible to the wider population. Street Roots provides a source of income for the homeless and a public forum to have these essential stories told.
