JOIN and Street Roots hosted a joint Equity Stories photography workshop in August 2013 that brought together people who are currently or formerly homeless and living in poverty. Participants interviewed one another about their experiences living in the Portland area, the opportunities and challenges they face, and their hopes for the future. Then participants photographed each other and selected quotes from their interviews that captured the stories they wanted to share.

Luke Sensei, a Street Roots vendor, also shared his perspectives on homelessness and poverty and his experiences as a Street Roots vendor in a video interview.
