individuals find
work with monthly
paper Groundcover
Daily StaffReporter
While people normally read
newspapers to find out what's
happening in the world, a group
of homeless individuals hope to
use the print media to provide
economic relief, empowerment

and a sense of community.
The monthly street newspaper
Groundcover, founded in April
2010, provides job opportunities
and serves as a collective voice
for people facing tough financial
conditions. Seventy-five people
in total have been trained at
seminars provided by the news-
paper, which contains articles
on numerous topics as well as
advertisements from local busi-
nesses. The paper is now also
garnering greater support from
University students.
Vendors receive 10 free papers
to sell and can subsequently buy

additional papers for people to
purchase for 25 cents each. The
paper sells for $1 per copy.
Groundcover publisher Susan
Beckett said the newspaper plays
an important role for homeless
people by offering thei a source
of income.
"The way the economy is right
now, there are so many people
who have no alternative," Beck-
ett said. "(For one vendor) that
dollar is what lets him do his
Currently, the newspaper has
25 active vendors. The seminars
the 75 people have attended

include classes on advanced sell-
ing, basic computing and writ-
ing for potential contributors to
Beckett described Ground-
cover's content as "eclectic,"
which ranges from interviews
with members of the Ann Arbor
community to articles on how to
reduce one's carbon footprint.
"We want people to buy the
paper, we want people to enjoy
the paper and 12 pages of pov-
erty and homelessness can get
pretty depressing," Beckett said.

The Diag is often filled with
sounds of students hustling to

crunching leaves and some-
times, the voices of people shar-

one of these people is Mike
Reed, also known as Brother
Mike, who often visits the Diag
for his "open air preaching."
And while some students say
