Street Speech: Street Speech is a street newspaper program started by Coalition VISTAs in 2007.  Since then it has grown from a monthly to a bimonthly periodical, with a circulation of about 6,000 per issue and 12,000 per month.  The newspaper employs approximately 40 vendors monthly.  In addition to employment, Street Speech serves an advocacy function, covering issues of relevance to homeless and other low-income people.
