Thank you for picking up Two Way Street! I hope what you find between these pages leaves you informed, inspired, and thinking a little differently than before you opened it.
This winter has been a time of internal learning and growth for Two Way Street’s all-volunteer team. Many times, I’ve been reminded that what we’re trying to do isn’t easy. Publishing an independent newspaper full of thoughtful journalism and interesting content isn’t easy. Recruiting and retaining vendors among our city’s insecurely housed and transient communities isn’t easy. Collaborating in a group of people with totally different communication styles and personal circumstances, and all without a physical home base – not easy. And of course, for our vendors, simply surviving during the winter is not easy.
