Spare Change News

Spare Change covers inequality, art and activism in the Boston area. Published every other Friday. The paper also provides a locus of stability and community, and serves as a nexus of life transition for its primary customers – the newspaper vendors. Meanwhile, the publication is devoted to producing quality editorial content, which includes journalistic, fiction, creative and opinion writing, illustration, and cartooning. This commitment is meant to serve Spare Change’s secondary customers, i.e., the readers themselves. Their content is almost always 100% locally produced, with much of it written, drawn and photographed by currently or formerly homeless, or otherwise low-income individuals. Finally, the newspaper serves as a resource for people in need of services such as food, shelter, clothing, employment, healthcare and legal aid, as can be found in the “Situations Wanted” and “Helping Hands” sections of the print edition.2,3.
