The exhibit features photos taken by vendors of Toledo Streets Newspaper. The event is free and open to the public. Toledo Streets Newspaper Launched in 2009, Toledo Streets produces a monthly newspaper covering community news related to homelessness, poverty, and other relevant social justice issues. Vendors are self-contracted ‘business-owners’ who set their own goals and selling locations while abiding by a code of conduct. Vendors keep the difference of their sales, using their earnings for various needs such as rent, food, transportation and more. Along with earning income, vendors develop general job skills and contribute to their community through self-employment.
