Hartford Residents Release 4th Edition of Beat of the Street


Beat of the Street, Hartford’s “street paper,” recently released its 4th edition and has begun distribution of the paper. Started last fall by Donna Berman, Executive Director of the Charter Oak Cultural Center, Beat of the Street features content on the subject of homelessness and poverty, often written by individuals who have experienced homelessness or poverty themselves. Nathan Fox, Field Organizer at the Partnership for Strong Communities, oversaw the compilation and production of the newest edition which features a revamped poetry and arts section, an article on youth homelessness, information on Hartford area farmers markets, an article on stigma and mental health, and much more.

Having recently received a number of donations and sponsorships for Beat of the Street, the group has plans to publish content in newspaper tab form for future editions, much like the Hartford News or Hartford Advocate. The group will soon choose a publisher to handle the production and will release the 5th edition in this format in early October.
