Street Newspaper distributed by homeless and impoverished citizens of Dallas. Focused on homeless and poverty issues, STREETZine gives the vendor an opportunity to develop advocacy and awareness through their paper distribution, which helps people understand the issues and the personal stories of those on the lowest rung of the economic ladder.


The Big Issue

Our very own Gary Keeton was featured in the Big Issue a UK street paper.

People experiencing homelessness have often been hit hardest during the pandemic. Street paper vendors from around the world have told us how the work has supported them, a reminder that they must not be forgotten.

The Big Issue is one of 100 street papers around the world, who are part of INSP. Thank you to Liceulice, The Big Issue Australia, Real Change News, Hinz&Kunzt, The Stewpot, Megaphone and ビッグイシュー公式ページ (The Big Issue Japan) for sharing their vendors' stories.

Condolences for Patricia Sue (Wilson) Spradley -

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of longtime friend of The Stewpot Pat Spradley. Pat’s relationship with The Stewpot began in 2006 where she worked as a full-time staff member in the Development Office and assisted with the Community Voice Mail program. She retired in 2015, but continued to work as the primary editor of the STREETZine newspaper. Pat was a passionate person who cared deeply for the homeless community and served as a dedicated advocate for both the paper and The Stewpot. She will be greatly missed. Information about Pat Spradley’s legacy and her funeral services can be found here: is the premier resource for online obituaries, local obituaries news, celebrity obituary news and online tributes celebrating the life and death of loved ones and providing support during times of loss and grieving. 02/14/2020

The way this is written seems problematic for a number of reasons. The point of view of the homeless folks is not presented. The idea that homelessness is synonymous with criminality/danger to the public is taken as a given, while it is in fact not true. Nowhere is the idea that this man made problem can be addressed through housing even mentioned. 02/03/2020

General information

STREETZine has offered financial opportunity to homeless and economically disadvantaged individuals in Dallas, Texas since 2003. Vendors pay 25¢ for each paper, asking readers for a suggested donation of $1.00 and keep 100% the donations he or she receives. New vendors receive 10 free copies of the paper to get them started. For the vendor, the paper offers a positive experience of self-help that breaks through the isolation that many homeless people experience. The vendors are able to become independent and/or self-sufficient with their proceeds from the paper by purchasing bus passes and food or necessary living expenses. It also gives them opportunity for expression by publishing their articles, poems and artwork.
