Thinking globally, acting locally - street paper association launches new site

The North American Street Newspaper Association (NASNA) just launched it’s website today. It still has a few bugs, but for the most part we got it up and running.

  • The volunteer organization continues to grow with representation in 26 cities throughout North America.

    Three newspapers from the Pacific Northwest belong to NASNA, including Street Roots, Portland, Real Change, Seattle, and The Rising Times in Spokane.

    In June, the organization will be merging with the International Network of Street Newspapers (INSP) in Montreal, Quebec, during the annual conference. The merger will create more than 120 papers worldwide in Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, North and South America.
  • INSP

  • Both organizations have created the Street News Service, a weekly updated newswire for street papers around the world.

  • NASNA’s major goals for the coming year is building a solid Technical Assistance program for existing, and start up papers in North America, while continuing to share resources in a number of capacities. More to come…

    Check out the new site, and see what it's all about.

    Great to see NASNA still around. I was at the founding conference and have always been impressed with Street Roots and the street newspaper movement.
