This is a site maintained by a formerly homeless mother/daughter 
team: Dee and la Tiny, who together have nourished an amazing 
wellspring of creative energy for San Francisco's local 
homeless/poverty publications and their contributors.

They are also collaborators with the Coalition on Homelessness' 
STREET SHEET, along with the American Friends Service Committee's 
STREET SPIRIT and Media Alliance - a unique and effective 
media/activist resource - in a project called Raising Our Voices. 
Raising Our Voices is a sixteen-week free training in guerilla 
journalism, desktop publishing and media advocacy for poor and 
homeless people who are shut out of the mainstream media as a 
consequence of their economic status.

I highly recommend that all of you who want to learn about how to 
"get the word out" about the issues that affect you use these 
valuable resources:

and check out Raising Our Voices' latest class project,
